Alonday, Borlongan, Garibay, Justiniani, Leaño & Santos III @

The Silangan Foundation for the Arts, Culture and Ecology together
with the Pinto Art Gallery and the Boston Gallery present a group art
exhibition featuring the works of artists Salvador Alonday, Elmer
Borlongan, Emmanuel Garibay, Mark Justiniani, Antonio Leaño and Jose Santos III at the Art Center, SM Megamall from February 23 to March 11, 2007. The show opens on February 23, Friday at 6pm.

The exhibition brings together for the first time the works of these
six contemporary Filipino artists, each having attained renown in
their fields both in the country and abroad. Alonday is former member
of the Hulo group and an erstwhile professor at the Institute of Fine
Arts of the Philippine Women's University. Borlongan, Garibay,
Justiniani, Leano and Santos were members of the artist collective
Salingpusa in the 1990s.

Alonday's figurative works in resin and cement reflect his pervasive
interest in mythic subjects as metaphors of the body-soul and the
struggles of life in its various stages of growth and enlightenment.
Borlongan's large oils on canvas works are commentaries on the
resilience of the Filipino despite misfortune that besets their lives
and bodies. Garibay works with a more robust brushwork to reveal and
expose the complex relations of church, state and people in an
ideological struggle for hearts and minds. Justiniani's poetic
paintings tackle themes such as the diasporic life, solitude and
memory. Leano presents an installation which extends his current
philosophy of artistic work. Finally Santos shows his recent series
of large-scale canvases. His labyrinthine compositions touch base
with everyday realities expressed in unworldly imagery.

This event also serves as the launching activity for the recently
incorporated Foundation, a non-stock, non-profit organization
involved in the humanistic study, preservation and promotion of
Philippine contemporary art. Proceeds from the show will be used for
the establishment of the Silangan Philippine Contemporary Art Museum
in Antipolo City. For inquiries, please call Andy Estella at 7229205.
