For his seventh solo exhibition, Iloilo artist – Melvin Guirhem presents Salimuot where he weaves his ever-present concerns not merely as a conscious interlude of colors, illustrations, and other media but as something that is originally perceived in his fragile/fertile imaginations. Digging deeper, Guirhem expands his visual language further and extends his artistic range. For his creative output, Guirhem does six paintings on acrylic and six artworks on thread creating a striking exhibit for its diversity and richness. Collectively, Guirhem pushes the cause what and how Iloilo is creatively shaping up.

Join us this July 17, 2021, as Melvin Guirhem establishes tension, solitude, or equilibrium, their spatial yet lyrical pieces may be subtle or harsh, yet both convey the sense of delight in the painters’ free reign of imagery and visual style. Even as Guirhem is open to more raw approaches to art, he still realizes that paintings should be created for its social function and not lost in “painting for painting’s sake.”
