the Paper Flight exhibit

           We all have that one childhood memory of making paper planes, even annoying our teachers by flying them in class. But gone are the days when you compared paper planes with friends and attempting to ‘ out-fly’ each other by making it fly higher or last longer in the air. Today, paper planes are replaced with those high-tech gadgets that I’ve always find hard to get acquainted with, and the friends? Already mapped all over the globe. So how do we bring back those good ol’ days? That exactly is the main goal of the exhibit. So we asked our friends from all over (unfortunately, we couldn’t find a contact from the Arctic or Antarctica) to take us with them to their place by taking photos of interesting spots in their area with an object that would represent us – this is where the paper planes come in.. .

          The diversity in the photos is just raddd, from the differently made paperplanes (the Origami paperplanes from Japan are a fave!) to the unusual spots where the photos were taken. It just shows that we’ve got a bunch of creative friends! And we couldn’t thank them enough for the time that they took from their busy lives to participate in this little project of ours. This exhibit is for them and by them, it is their exhibit, we are just the fortunate ones to execute it.

Setting up the exhibit - photos and other materials were everywhere, chocolates anyone?

         All the love to our contributors, like I said this exhibit is by all of you and we just merely executed it. We hope this wouldn’t be the last and you won’t get tired of participating in our little projects. I’m already racking my brains for the next one, I’m sure another great idea will pop out soon. Let’s just all cross our fingers for next year.. .

Peace, Love & some RakEnRoll,

Cebu Contemporary

          Late last year, my partner-in-crime Kidlat was asked by his agent to produce paintings for an upcoming exhibit which will run for the month of January this year. He only had less than a week to prepare and execute the paintings, which of course he was able to do and was the last among the other Cebu artists to put up his work (beating deadlines the last-minute seems to work for both of us!). The concept of his paintings were the seven deadly sins as represented by games and other elements of a children’s party, which I leave the interpretations up to you. Kidlat’s paintings were situated outside the entrance door because it was ‘different’ from the usual abstract paintings that were inside. Perhaps this ‘difference’ made it stand out and greeted the guests who had different reactions upon seeing it. Nevertheless, I always take pride in his work because in many ways we will always be different from most.. .

          So which is Gluttony? Greed? Sloth?  I am quite perplexed myself, all up to your imagination and reasoning. Here are some works from the other artists in the exhibit.. .
