the everyday exploits and bursts of ideas from a twenty-something beatnik

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.. .
