Three Solo Shows by Women Artists @ Boston Art Gallery

Three solo shows by women artists at Boston Art Gallery this August:
Weena Soberano-Espardinez, Tammy Tan, and Sonia Alluso

Opening on August 13, 2011 at Boston Art Gallery in Cubao are simultaneous solo exhibitions of recent works by Weena Soberano-Espardinez, Tammy Tan, and Sonia Alluso.

Weena Soberano-Espardinez unveils her “Trying Waters” show of recent paintings in acrylic on canvas. Her work combine figures of women submerged or interacting with the element of water, creating scapes and shapes distorted and diffused by water, light, and glass.

The artist captures these moments of transition and transformation where figure and flesh meets fluid, dripping and drenched or in contact against wet glass. The works tread across “the symbolic and the technical—an experiment in both skill and meaning,” as the artist terms it. Soberano-Espardinez has been a practicing visual artist and writer for the past two decades and is a member of the artists group Salingpusa.

Tammy Tan presents “Stilled Life,” showing human figures lost in indoor scenes and still life objects, such as potted plants and bonsai. Imbuing human presence into scenes populated by otherwise still objects, Tan's paintings capture little moments and memories of discoveries, suspended in time.

Sonia Alluso's exhibit of new genre paintings, entitled “Spices of Life,” represents in vivid colors scenes and vignettes from everyday life, highlighting the nuanced relationships between people, family, and loved ones.

Often titling her works after food, Alluso presents the various flavors of life and offers viewers a taste of the varying emotions and experiences that the ordinary person goes through. Alluso is presently working as an art teacher and studio artist.
