Art x Politics
Textures and Colours
I seem to have a habit of making reproductions.
The floor gallery (
because I’ve never heard of hanging canvasses on walls, apparently. Or of frames):
The thing, at 40x50cm:
I think the photos turned out pretty well –mostly because I borrowed my sister‘s Fujifilm camera. Thanks, sis!
I went to the ArtFairPH last February to satisfy my ravenous appetite for art, good company and pretentious wine.
I went first on a Friday night with C (and there’s a long story there involving traffic, impulsive life decisions, a potted plant, and a job interview), then on Saturday afternoon with my sis. I will say that I’m happy I went there twice; the exhibited pieces apparently change by the day, depending on what’s been bought and what’s been newly added.
This post has long been delayed, mostly because I wanted to properly label everything with their respective title and creator. I gave up. If you know the creators of the following works and could give me a tip, or if you are a representative who would like me to take something down, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
+ I confirmed that in terms of the art I appreciate the most, I like monochromatic pieces (with or without accent colors) and social commentaries.
Honestly I’m just trying to clear up my queue.

Things I’d stare at forever, had I the time.
I was supposed to write about the things I’ve been up to the last two or so weeks –new books and TV series and people– but instead this post came out. I was reading books on art yesterday, in that window of time when I had nothing to do (in between class and debate training), so I suppose that explains it. This post is actually queued; I hope I woke up in time for class.
These are some of the works of art that interest me the most, maybe because of the feelings they evoke or their history. A couple of them make me laugh whenever I think of them, which is always a plus.
I’ll probably hopefully maybe update this someday. Belatedly I noticed that most of the ones featured here are Western art from the early to mid-twentieth century.
Well, my preferred style has always been against naturalistic and realistic expressions. I’ll have to visit more local and Asian museums to diversify. (But if I had to concede to anything, I’ll concede to Botticelli, and the Sistine Chapel, and honestly a lot of works I salivated over that time I went to the Louvre/Vaticani.)
Art is art is art, and art alone exists forever.
