MANILA, Philippines — Sweet Disposition at the ArtistSpace of Ayala Museum is Mykie Concepcion’s first one-woman show about capturing the innocence of youth. The exhibit aims to remind us to find wonderment in simple, seemingly ordinary things.

Mykie Concepcion’s realistic paintings and drawings capture these moments that we might take for granted. In a world that’s becoming increasingly digital and full of screens, it’s refreshing to experience what’s real and tangible. She uses a variety of mediums, primarily oil paint, watercolor paint, graphite pencil, and charcoal. The works are mainly realistic, with hints of colourful impressionism taken from the artist’s love for Monet, Degas, and Van Gogh. She also enjoys graphical elements that are achieved in her rubber cut prints.

Ultimately, she finds happiness in painting the things she loves. If her works manage to make someone smile or find joy in them, then she believes she has fulfilled her person as an artist.
