Momentous Arts presents Recalibration – a solo exhibition by acclaimed painter Edwin Wilwayco.
With more than three decades of sustained dedication to abstract painting, Wilwayco is regarded as one of Philippines important artist in the field of abstraction. He has been a major contributor to the development of abstract art in his country and is best known for his lush and lyrical paintings.
The series of works created over a period of nine months in his two studios in Rhode Island and Manila, incorporating improvisation in both techniques/processes that created new meanings and in dialogue with the mystifiying forces of nature. Wilwayco signature oeuvre is informed by deep spirituality, self-introspection and a reverence for the beauty and power of nature. The process of painting, an integral part of his artistic practice unfurls what the abstract master has come to be known for : lyrical & eloquent brushworks. The lush paintings of Wilwayco with their immediacy and accessibility in particular the artist’s construction process- painterly marks, deep passages, over painting animated with playful elements of drips and dribbles with the occasional adding of sand and sack cloth; keeps the viewer fixated on a surface adventure and affirms the artist passionate devotion to Abstract Expressionism. Their emotive power articulated across many levels from the tranquil to the exuberant and vigorous; expressively nuanced by colours and gestures. It is this that lends Wilwayco flowing paintings their intense vibrancy and energy.

What is Perfection?   Ha Myounggoo

“My current pieces are based on conveying one’s sensitivity & sensual needs through sculpture using the basic processes of ceramics. My main inspiration on developing this idea is based on the theme of maternal tenderness and warmth - the warmth of a mothers hug, the softness of a treasured rag doll. The textures & feelings that are all too common to all people. Using clay I was able to express the softness of one’s touch.”  


   

Rene Robles
In the 1950's there was abstract expressionism. In the 1960's there was pop art, and from 1970 to the present, a steadfastly growing diversity in art has developed. What all these developments have in common is that they reflect developments in their societies. Art is not static, it continually seeks a new way of visual expression. In the 1950's and 60's artists followed particular stylistic disciplines and their results were distinct. In the last three decades, however, diversity destroyed every form of discipline. Artists use recycled materials and can go back and forth in time from the ancient period to the present for their subject mode which can mutate or combine with others, resulting in a different art form. - Written by M.

Pete Jimenez Dragica Milunovic Georg Heider Loo Hooi Nam

He sees the potential of found objects (iron in this case), pick the pieces that he likes, bring them back where he hammer and weld them in his garage. Filipino sculptor Pete Jimenez would reconfigured the metals with humor and imagination, smacked with eccentricity.

It's quite exciting when you're knocked out by the visual impact of a painting. That's just the kind of effect we've come to expect from Dragica Milunovic's work and she certainly doesn't let us down in this exhibition. Here she offers a collection of fourteen works, ranging in size from 150 cm square to 5 cm square, each composed of cross-hatched lines made by the point of a small brush dipped in tints and tones of a single colour. - From a 2007 exhibition review (partial) by Judith McGrath 

Paintings by Dragica Milunovic

Born in 1944, in southern Germany, In 2003 after visiting an exhibition of paintings on back of glass near Murnau, he loved it so much that he started to paint in the same technique. The desire to further the technique grew more and more, that it now becomes an obsession. Inspired by his imagination, his imagery are often exaggerated or with a double meaning. “No prejudice or hurt, I prefer things with movement and bright colors that fill an image, things that create happiness, said the artist. “I paint with acrylic paints. As you can see both sides of the glass, we are not sure of how things will never work in the end. When painting on the back glass, there is some risk. But turn the glass is almost always a wonderful moment as laugh and sing at the same time and I do not want to paint in other materials.”

Beyond the familiar landscapes in Loo Hooi Nam paintings, there is a kind of suspense which Loo offers viewers; the experience of being there with him - like taking in the wind on a secluded beach or the rustling of leaves in a quiet afternoon. Each of these moment captured with swift unrestrained palette knife strokes and marks that exhibit his instinctive impulses and feeling for the place he is painting. One has to feel your way across the terrain with eyes open and will be richly rewarded with a surface adventure that hypnotized and pulsate with light and colour.
