ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Robert Gutierrez

My Mother the Moon

 

The current paintings are essentially psychic landscapes and animistic in nature.  The source material of the narratives in the work is a mix of the indigenous folklore of my childhood past with the ramshackle architecture in present Manila.  The trickster archetype animated in religiousness is foremost in many of the stories.  Quasi-spiritual landmarks manifest in the cracks and crevices of a quixotic terrain.  Shifting elements within the picture plane transform toward a seemingly precarious scenario. It is a landscape populated with all the pleasures and fears of the collective mind.
