Remember

Níccolo José

July 14 – 28, 2021

Everyone has had different challenging experiences since the beginning of the pandemic. Nothing is more difficult than losing a loved one. For this exhibition, I wanted to highlight those we miss by sculpting abstracted forms that convey the psyche of togetherness. The pieces are meant as a reflection of resonating moments we’ve had with others. Depending on the perspective of the viewer, some might appear like a silhouette of lovers adoring each other, shadows of partners dancing or couples embracing, a pregnant wife, an outline of a mother or father kissing their child, an abstraction of friends celebrating, or a profile of two bodies joining together. Each piece is a poetic expression of our never-ending connectedness to the people we love and how they impact our lives.

Binhi

Lydia Velasco and Lon De Cruz

28 May – June 12, 2021

Binhi, which is the vernacular word for seed, is the tandem exhibition of mother and daughter Lydia Velasco and Lon de Cruz, now on view at the Galerie Roberto. The title is symbolic in many ways, signifying the capacity for new life. As binhi is the fertilized, matured ovule of a flowering plant capable of germination, so does it allude to human life, the continuation of the next generation. As a verb, it is the action of sowing the land with seeds; or sowing the spirit with artistic fire. Thus, Binhi befits the phenomenon of an artistic dynasty such as that fostered by Lydia Velasco, now a septuagenarian but still actively engaged in the seeding of new life to her visual creations.
