CURRENT EXHIBITION

INIZIO

Nixxio Castrillo

January 5 – 18, 2022

On view at Galerie Roberto is Nixxio’s solo exhibition billed as “Inizio: New Beginnings.” Appropriately, it is the gallery’s opening year exhibition, and symbolically, a new beginning for Nixxio. Though still visibly influenced by his father’s design aesthetics – in particular, the allusion to irregularly shaped rectangular forms that propel themselves into zigzagging and upward movement that symbolizes spring-like growth – there are striking pieces that distinctly point a new direction for Nixxio.

RECENT EXHIBITIONS

“NEW WAVE”

Various Artists

“New Wave situates eight artists who engage with abstraction in the digital age. This milieu could be characterized as consisting of a general public which largely regards abstraction in stylistic terms, easily categorizable into the various -isms decontextualized, defanged, and reduced to an orderly collection of formal idioms rather than specific cultural articulations of political ideologies throughout history.”

“UGAT”

Various Artists

“Ugat” features ten artists of different persuasions and dispositions taking the idea of roots, and its various connotations, as their artistic point of departure.

The word “roots” is commonly used in botanical terms, to refer to the part of a plant which attaches to a ground or support to extract and transport water and other nutrients to the rest of the plant. Through its Tagalog counterpart “ugat,” roots share affinities with veins, vessels through which deoxygenated blood courses from various organs back to the heart, further reinforcing the images of movement and communication that roots conjure.

“Paradise”

LEI MANTO

Lei Manto approaches his first solo exhibition with a critical exploration of the Filipino trope of paradise and destiny. Locating his narrative in the confines of his community and upbringing, Manto intimates a glimpse of his life that has defined his art. This includes the negotiations he pursues that come with his visualizations and imaginings. He exposes the anxiety of the human experience through his search for identity, his understanding of the gestures of positions and power, and decisively, through the collective experience of a social group.

TINY NUYDA: LIMITLESS HORIZONS

It is fitting that his latest mindscape creation, which was part of Galerie Roberto and Art Moments Jakarta’s “Varied Conversations” is titled Fire and Ice. “I am a very spontaneous painter,” he said. “The concept behind the artwork develops as I paint and then concludes when I lift the paintbrush away from the canvas. Fire and Ice is representative of a paradox behind the elements, their shapes, how I imagine them integrate and form.”

ANTON DEL CASTILLO LONGS FOR BETTER DAYS IN PAROUSIA

Anton Del Castillo believes that his art, although often rooted in personal events and people close to him, can be a way to express universal themes. For Anton, all art conveys a narrative. The stories shown in his works, however, are founded on visions. “The scenes that are depicted in my art often come from episodes that curiously show up in my dreams,” he says. “I am then urged to render them into permanence. Interestingly, these scenes mirror my own experiences and, as I eventually come to know, those of others as well.”
