KUNG SA TAMBOBONG: Ernie Patricio’s 8th solo exhibit at vMeme Contemporary Art Gallery

Advocacy, Music and Arts By August 4, 2013 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

vMeme Contemporary Art Gallery and Earth Day Network Philippines Inc., in cooperation with Museo Maritimo and City Government of Malabon, unveil the first installment of KUNG SA TAMBOBONG exhibit featuring works by artist Ernie Patricio on August 5, 7:00 in the evening at vMeme Contemporary Art Gallery 2nd Floor CK Building No. 61 Visayas Avenue Quezon City.

A part of climate change awareness campaign through the arts, this traveling exhibit features Ernie Patricio’s watercolor paintings, found objects and installations depicting life around rivers and seas. The show is aimed to present the apparent threats of climate change as seen in Malabon, the artist’s hometown. It is an inquisition and speculation of our actions affecting the environment and vice versa.

Involvement and intervention is the heart of Ernie Patricio’s works. They are based on and more often a willing involvement in issues that confront our everyday life. Throughout decades of praxis, topics such as poverty, diaspora, freedom and modernization were inquired upon in very sophisticated selection of colors and high level of technique in Patricio’s works. “The artist of these inquisitive works, having survived decades as an OFW and battled against stage 3 cancer, continues to portray not only our society’s current situation but also how/what it was to picture how/what it should be”, says curator Avie Felix.
