The Infinite Yes
Silverlens Gallery, Philippines

Artist Chati Coronel digs into one of mankind’s deepest questions, examining the creation tales of various cultures in her latest solo exhibition. Through the layering of colourful paint upon canvas, Coronel conveys the viewpoint that the truth behind our creation and existence is more complex than we ever dared imagine. The artworks touch on various streams of belief regarding the origin of humankind, including evolution, the first man and woman theories and divine power.

Japanese artist Wataboku examines the intertwined cultures of the Japanese and Thais through his contemporary digital artworks. This bond is experienced through the eyes of a high school student wearing her uniform, simultaneously bringing to mind one’s adolescence and youthful follies along the path towards self-understanding.

New York-based artist Miya Ando probes into the concepts of time and transformation through her paintings on pieces of installation art. Her most notable works are gracefully blended colour gradients on metallic and wooden structures, evoking the tranquil ethereality of natural scenes, such as those of clouds, mist and dawn. Designed to engage and interact with the audience, the works are experiential, where viewers can experience multiple perspectives of a single piece by varying their viewing angle, or by viewing the piece in different lighting conditions throughout the day. This highlights the impermanence of every moment — just one of many of the artist’s spiritual influences in her work.

5 Lock Road 01-05, Gillman Barracks. Tue-Sat, 11am-7pm. Until April 14.
