In an upcoming exhibition titled “Homage to the Masters and Recent Works”, L’ Arc en Ciel Atelier and the ArtistSpace will present new works by four artists: Alfred Galura, Stella Kim, Sky de Leon, and
Connie Quirino. Together, these artists will pay tribute to their local and international influences by showcasing contemporary paintings rendered in the techniques reminiscent of the masters’.
Alfred Galura's exquisite still life tableaux of porcelain, flowers, and laces are a joy to behold. With the kind of meticulous art that he creates, viewers will surely be bewildered on how such intricacies can be rendered so magnificently in watercolor. Included in the show are landscapes of his home province of Pampanga and its environs.
Stella Kim returns to the Manila audience after further honing her skills in San Francisco with the
Sadie Valeri Atelier, where she studied for the last two years. The exhibition includes her oeuvre from her two-year stint in the atelier, notable for the thin layers of paint used to attain the excellent finish of
Sky de Leon is presently in Florence to attend the spring workshop of Jura Bedic titled “Figures in Interior Setting” conducted by the Florence Academy of Art. At a very young age of fifteen he was accepted by the school after seeing his promising portfolio. He is an achiever in La Salle and is a gold medalist both for academic excellence and in art. He pays tribute to Fra Filippo Lippi with his interpretation of the Madonna.
Connie Quirino has developed her own unique style in painting. Before she joined L' Arc en Ciel Atelier, her first mentor was National Artist for Visual Arts Federico Aguilar Alcuaz. In this exhibition, she paints three tributes to Vincent Van Gogh, one of her favourite impressionist masters.
