What was, what is and what could be

CEBU, Philippines — Two art exhibits amped-up Qube Gallery’s playbill for the month of June; shows which left viewers with a youthful-but-not-naïve translucence that isn’t derived from after school confessionals or clumsy analogies on life’s ups and downs.

Presented in the gallery’s new space at The Crossroads in Banilad, Golda King’s “Here” and Marc “Kdlt” Copino’s “Isla” very well catalogued where the mindsets of the two talents are at this point in time – invariably saying something about how young Cebuano talents are breaking away from the restrictive punctuations of convention.

Copino’s “Isla”

In Marc “Kdlt” Copino’s third solo show, the artist maintained the stencil-based neo-expressionist-cum-surrealist style that has become the nucleus of his creative oeuvre.

What made “Isla” different from the artist’s previous solo exhibits is that it was hinged on his affinity with solitude – a telling of an artist’s struggle to be left to fly with his wings yet to be kept grounded by the very same wings.

Composed of narrative renderings of life in Bantayan island, the show’s thematic bearings was anchored on the artist’s goal to make works that serve as a source for inspiring lessons for his infant son when he grows up – an aspect of the show which could be readily picked-up by its viewers.
