Carlos Rocha's Painting Shakespeare @ Ayala Museum

Carlos Rocha's Painting Shakespeare @ Ayala Museum
"Painting Shakespeare"
by Carlos Rocha
Ayala Museum
April 11, 2007 to May 11, 2007
9:00am to 6:00pm

An exhibition of artworks by Carlos Rocha. Carlos Rocha's "Painting Shakespeare" features paintings inspired by the plays of William Shakespeare, as well as other recent works by the artist.

Being fascinated with the bard’s literary genius, Carlos Rocha has painted his own impressions of scenes and themes from the plays. Sometimes working in symbols, taking the scenes out of their settings and into a different time and place, or depicting the scene as Shakespeare had written it, Carlos Rocha presents the paintings in his distinct style without altering the playwright’s intentions or purposes.

Some plays translated by Carlos Rocha in canvas include Measure for Measure, The Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Othello, and Love’s Labour’s Lost, among others.

The exhibition of this limited series also accompanies an exhibition of Carlos’ recent works of his usual subjects of landscapes, table settings, sea/shore scenes, etc.

Carlos’ paintings are known for their combination of pleasurable subjects and intensified color to convey an unwavering celebration of life as the central characteristic. Bold hues and strokes make uplifting emotion tangible in his striking artworks.

Born in February, 1950, Carlos Rocha grew up in a largely artistic environment; his father, the modernist architect Julio Victor Rocha, Julio’s friends, National Artists Vicente Manansala and Victorio Edades, and Julio’s one-time draftsman Onib Olmedo, who later became an artist of distinction, strongly influenced the young Carlos in their fervently modernist inclinations. Carlos’ paintings have now evolved into works of art in a decidedly Fauvist style. He is also a sculptor, and his sculptures are equally expressive, exhibiting graceful tension and movement.

Carlos Rocha's Painting Shakespeare is currently on view at the Ayala Museum.
