Current Exhibit

SAYSAY | May 22 – June 15, 2021

Artists Aileen Dela Cruz, Anne Lacaba, Leny Leonor and Tokwa Peñaflorida come together in a group exhibition titled “Phosphene”. The title refers to a visual phenomenon wherein the eyes detect or see rings or spots of light brought upon by stimulations other than an actual light source. Metaphorically, it stands for the recurring images that the artists are currently exploring in their respective creative practice. In iconography, this can be referred to as a motif, a recurring image in a composition which is employed for its symbolic function or as a decorative element, motif in common parlance can be synonymous to the terms “theme” or “style”. While the four artists differ in styles and themes, they are brought together by the way they incorporate the use of motif in their works not only for this exhibition but in their entire body of works.
