AMORE

AMORE

A Dedication…

To whom I owe the leaping delight
That quickens my senses in our waking time
And the rhythm that governs the repose of our sleeping time,
The breathing in unison
Of lovers whose bodies smell of each other
Who think the same thoughts without need of speech,
And babble the same speech without need of meaning

But this dedication is for others to read:
These are private words addressed to you in public.

On the fascinating and intriguing subject of artistic couples, a magazine article once posed the question: “They say that there’s no fate worse than dating an artist. But what happens when one creative falls in love with another?…While some went on to live happily ever after, others weren’t so lucky. However, they all have one thing in common: each relationship led these artists to create some of their best work.” In celebration of artistic couples, Galerie Roberto presents

“AMORE: A Couples’ Show.”

Picasso and Francoise Gilot…Robert and Sonia Delaunay…Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keefe…Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner…Willem
and Elaine de Kooning…Robert Motherwell and Helen Frankenthaler…Artistic couples all!

And since love, the universal emotion, knows no bounds, our country too has its own artistic couples:

Arnica Acantilado 𝐱 Don don Jeresano
Aubrey Caabay 𝐱 Aubrey Fajardo
Charmaine Cristobal 𝐱 Michael Montanez
Cid Reyes 𝐱 Mary Ann Reyes
Hermes Alegre 𝐱 Helena Alegre
Jay Ragma 𝐱 Aryan Sandiego
Josue Mangrobang 𝐱 Malyn Bonayog
Katti Sta.Ana 𝐱 Roberto Acosta
Kiko Marquez 𝐱 Ynah Baltero
Michelle Lua 𝐱 Jericho Vamenta
Mr.S 𝐱 Patricia Frades
Riel Hilario 𝐱 Celeste Quilantang

Indeed, we might paraphrase the great poet’s words, thus:

“These are private works shared with you in public…”
