“Resilience | Thriving Art Amid the Turbulence” is a group exhibition featuring four visual artists Revo Yanson, RPG, Mike Borromeo, and Tiano Beto, highlighting 28 artworks done in watercolor, gouache, and mixed media.
The artists’ statement articulated that to them, “resilience wells from within and is drawn from numerous factors, all summed into one’s core strengths. From belief systems to choices, it keeps the inner threads tightly locked from unraveling as we navigate unchartered terrains.”
“With unique levels of resilience, we are always in a learning path trying to access this anchor. We do not glorify it nor romanticize it though. Turbulence, on the other side, is the ever-present player. With or without the current crisis, there are the daily battles. Turbulence is a necessary jolt for us to rethink, to better, to reprove, to prove. There is nothing romantic about or glorious in it. These pieces attempt to capture and translate the visual vignettes of four individuals as they try to keep in pace with their dance with turbulences, amidst one of the most challenging eras of history. These works are foremost primal, allowing a peek into how the individual cadences work for these four artists,” it added.
“Resilience | Thriving Art Amid the Turbulence” opened on July 5 and will be accessible to the public until July 30 at the AAB Gallery+Cafe in Art District Mandalagan, from 1 to 8 pm, Mondays to Saturdays. Health protocols will be strictly observed.*
