Dominic Rubio and Richard Arimado in ‘Nostalgia’

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Galerie Joaquin presents Dominic Rubio and Richard Arimado together in an exhibit titled “Nostalgia,” where new works are shown in a manner that recalls William Wordsworth’s description of a Romantic artist bringing together memory into a “recollection of tranquility.”

Dominic Rubio’s very background reflects a career sensitive to tradition — he was raised in the famous folk art town of Paete in Laguna, where he still lives. He is a classically-trained painter, having graduated from the Fine Arts program of the University of Santo Tomas. In this way, he is also linked to the traditions of his Modernist forbearers. His works show a sense of nostalgic national pride, as well as the intricacies of our cultural past. 

Born and raised in Manila, Richard Arimado’s defining characteristic is that of perspective. A product of the Drafting Tech program of the Technological University of the Philippines, Arimado paints his subjects in the act of looking up, pausing to examine the audience staring down at them. His perspective, is from above where he utilizes a birds-eye view of the scene. His subjects freeze mid-walk and look up, perhaps catching a glimpse of the wide-eyed and curious painter.

“Nostalgia” was on view at the Atrium of the Podium Mall, and afterwards at Galerie Joaquin Podium located at the lower ground level of the Podium Mall, ADB Avenue in Ortigas Center. For information, call 723-9418, or visit www.galeriejoaquin.com.
