MANILA, Philippines - The act of atonement has becomes a powerful symbol in art. Symbols such as the crucifix, where Christ died for our sins, have become ways Christians can identify with the suffering and pain that led to our salvation.

Galerie Raphael’s exhibit “Lent” displays the best images of Christ’s sacrifice to the public. Running until April 1, the exhibit honors and reveres Christ and joins the entire nation in the celebration of the Holy Week and the conclusion of Lent.

This exhibit brings together artists like renowned sculptor Eduardo Castrillo, famous for his People’s Power Monument along EDSA, Jovan Benito, who has depicted scenes of Christ’s Passion and the spirit of Lent, and contemporary artists Toym Imao, son of the late National Artist Abdulmari Imao, and Ram Mallari. It is in this light that Galerie Raphael observes the Lenten season through the staging of an exhibit that celebrates Christ’s triumph over death through its depiction in visual art.

Galerie Raphael is at the 2/F the Shops at Serendra Mall, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. (856-3034), e-mail galerieraphael@yahoo.com. Works may also be viewed at www.galerieraphael.com.ph.
