7/3/09

June 2009 - ArtSlant's Juried Winner, Rosalia Bermudez, discusses the inspiration and process behind her work. Joan Honoridez-Mocorro: Your work, The Weight of Things got me.

Rosalia Bermudez: The work is an installation, consisting of 200+ individual pieces of "paper" that are suspended from the ceiling by thin fishing line, that is hardly detectable from a distance - so they really do a...

Thus, this is the first time that the four of them have exhibited as a group. The show opened on June 16 an... [more]

For Bogie Alvarado, the elder sibling in the two-man show featuring the sons of nationally acclaimed Filipino modern contemporary artist Nunelucio Alvarado, every artist is his brother. That mak...

Dave Palanca is an artist to watch. Now 47, he has come to be identified with his pen-and-ink works depicting the sacadas or sugarcane plantation workers of his native province, Negros Occidental, Philippines. Having finished pre-law and Nursing, Dave is able to separate his distinct courses from his art, as he insists that his precise anatomical drawings in school are totally different from his sacada artworks of people who are often depicted with enveloping arms and contorted face and feet...

Bacolod City, Philippines. A small strip of unnamed street was turned into an avenue where local artists can express themselves creatively. ArteKalye, which literally means "art" + "street", is envisioned to be the hub of contemporary art not only locally but also in the national and hopefully, international art scene. A band of committed members of the Art Association of Bacolod headed by its president, one of the most famous Filipino contemporary artists, Mr. Nunelucio Alvarado, collaborate... [more]
