Speaking the Language of Flowers

CEBU, Philippines -  Museo Sugbo voices the "Language of Flowers" with artist Novereich Agustin in tow. The exhibit stands to be more than a solo art show, as it is also a declaration that the artist has finally found his creative center after years of searching for his artistic identity.

Novereich has always been fascinated with flowers. His creative self thrives in the creation of animated process-and-content art pieces. The "Language of Flowers" is a collection of Novereich's art deco and self-made art pieces, each highlighted with complexly detailed handmade miniature face masks that are perfected by masterfully solidified lines, shades and tones.

Each of the exhibit's miniature face masks are prepared with lacquered air dried clay, complemented with intricately detailed daubs, switchbacks and dots, all in all yielding to a Japanese-inspired eminence that is intently elemental and profound.

The subject matter of Novereich's artworks, in many forms and circumstances, speaks of powerful emotions which are well represented and complemented by the face of a beautiful woman depicting depth springing from within.

 "The Language of Flowers" runs at the Museo Sugbo until the end of this month. To get to know more of the artist and his artworks, one may check out www.facebook.com/Novereich.  (FREEMAN)
