ABANDONED PALACE INDIA
GIFT OF GOD
Arturo Luz 18” x 24” Acrylic on Canvas 2012
Jaime Gubaton 36” x 24” Acrylic on Canvas 2014 LIVE AUCTION
LIVE AUCTION ESTIMATE: Php180k – Php240k STARTING BID: Php140k
National Artist Arturo R. Luz, painter, sculptor, and designer for more than 50 years, creates masterpieces that exemplify an ideal of sublime austerity. He pioneered minimalism in the country and was an inspiring force in Philippine modern art which he strongly supported via the Luz Gallery which exhibited works by well known and aspiring talents alike. Abandoned Palace India typifies the artist’s minimalist almost Zen like approach to constructing figures and buildings. Breaking them down into the most basic of lines, forms and color, thus emphasizing the cold isolation of the depicted place.
ESTIMATE: Php30k – Php50k STARTING BID: 25k
Art Petron, GSIS Art Competition, Metrobank Art and Design Excellence awards, PLDT Cover Design Contest, Kulay sa Tubig Watercolor Art Competition, you name it, Jaime Gubaton has won it. He is one of the few upcoming stars of contemporary Philippine art whose work exhibits superb technical skill and depth of concept. While most of his peers have opted to produce works of global appeal, Gubaton has stuck to his Filipino subjects and refuses to give up his identity. Gift of God may seem like a simple tribute to the iconic Philippine jeepney at first glance but a closer examination of its elements reveals there is more to it than just that. It beckons the viewer to stop (as the traffic light suggests) amid the hustle and bustle of the city and perhaps show gratitude for the simple blessings that surrounds him.

UNTITLED BOY FISHING
Mariano Ching Mixed Media, 2015
ESTIMATE: Php30k – Php40k STARTING BID: 15k
ESTIMATE: Php140k – Php180k STARTING BID: 100k
Mariano Ching’s works dwell on the excesses of the imagination. A recipient of the Monbusho Japanese Grant and the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Thirteen Artists Awards, an award given every three years by the government to emerging artists, Mariano Ching‘s fictional landscapes may be reminiscent of childlike fantasies, cartoonish and playful; and may be peopled by grotesque figures, deformed and mythical, but the underlying motif behind each scenery almost always consists of a sequence of revelation, an apparition achieved through a psychedelic state or a rude awakening propelled by the colors and symbols of a mix of shamanistic, Krishna, voodoo, alien or colonial iconography. Such paradox elevates his work from the mere excursions of the psyche and imagination to a rich, multi-layered narrative that has the ability to engage its audience like a sci-fi novella. He received his education in the University of the Philippines Fine Arts Program and became a distinguished Research Student as a Printmaking Major in Kyoto Arts University, Japan. His works have been shown regularly throughout Metro Manila’s galleries as well as in other countries, in Malaysia, Singapore, and France to name a few. Mariano Ching is also one of our very own alumni from Batch ’89.
2006 TOYM Awardee Michael Cacnio is a world-class brass sculptor of the social realist genre. He is a product of the prestigious College of Fine Arts of the University of the Philippines and has had more than 50 well-received solo exhibits here and abroad. His art has achieved critical acclaim and commercial success and is a beacon of what popular Philippine sculpture is all about today. Boy Fishing is a prime example of the artist’s work, contemporary in terms of execution yet traditional in terms of subject matter. Metal (Brass) is meticulously cut, bent, and welded together to achieve its lifelike aura and placed permanently on a carefully selected piece of white stone giving it a touch of fantasy.
Buhay Mendoza 24” x 24” Oil on Canvas 2011
Anthony Palo 24” x 18” Oil on Canvas 2011
ESTIMATE: Php10k – Php15k STARTING BID: Php5k
ESTIMATE: Php10k – Php15k STARTING BID: Php5k
Dwight “Buhay” Mendoza or simply BUHAY is a self-taught artist who paints people that we see every day. He graphically transfers these into paintings to tell a story and a statement about life hence his nickname. Jalapeno Bubbly is perhaps his take on certain people who are full of showbiz flash but shallow in terms of intelligence. Or it could be about the philosophy of don’t worry, be happy. You be the judge.
Anthony Palo, who graduated from UP Fine Arts 2010, is an artist whose canvass is a metaphorical Petri dish wildly teeming with odd assortments of creatures and cretins re-imagined from Oz, comic books, manga and anime. He has two sold out shows to his credit, one at e galerie in Serendra around 2007 and the other in Singapore around 2008. Superhero is the artist’s statement on how ordinary people can summon strength from within and hurdle extraordinary circumstances. Courage is on call after all.
TSYA O TSYUB
Eddie Santillan 32” x 24” Oil on Canvas 2012
Jun Balasbas 26” x 24” Acrylic on Canvas 2012
ESTIMATE: Php18k – Php24k STARTING BID: Php10k
ESTIMATE: Php20k – Php30k STARTING BID: Php12k
Eddie is self taught and self-made artist who is on his way to making a good name for himself in the field of art. At only 32 years old, he is already considered as one of the best portrait artist of his time. Nature Lovers is a very dreamy depiction of a man and a woman engaged in the sincerest expression of love – the kiss! Amid a lush forest and seeping rays of sunlight, what could be more romantic ?
Another self taught artist, Jun Balasbas is a 38 year old graphic designer, painter and Christian pastor whose works speak the language of an illustrator. His view of the world around him is that of an innocent child and he believes it to be a funny place with much to smile about. Tsya o Tsyub is a casual look at the everyday life of fruit vendors and buyers haggling while kids go about playing this game of bottle caps, oblivious to the noise and troubles of their elders.
LOVE IS NEVER BLACK AND WHITE Maya Ladyong 24” x 24” Acrylic on Canvas 2014 SILENT AUCTION ESTIMATE: Php20k – Php25k STARTING BID: Php15k
Trained at UP Fine Arts, Maya Ladyong runs a vegetarian restaurant, art gallery and art school along Wilson Street in Greenhills. Her enterprising and creative spirit pushes her to paint art that re-imagines three-dimensional origami by transposing it on twodimensional space as a narrative instrument where love and bliss exist as fragments of the temporal. Love is Never Black and White typifies the artist’s knack for presenting her opinion on relationships which aren’t always clear cut. Her soft, almost tactile cherry blossom flowers contrasting the sharp edges of the origami swallows hovering in seemingly still flight.
QUARANTINE Xander Calceta 20” x 36” Oil on Canvas 2015
SILENT AUCTION ESTIMATE: Php25k – Php35k STARTING BID: Php20k
Xander Calceta is a talented visual artist whose approach is a blend of impressionism and naturalism. Trained in the traditional methods of painting, he is confident enough to poke fun at contemporary subjects by injecting his brand of humor and whimsy into his unique type of art. Quarantine stands out as the artist’s attempt to tackle isolation and longing by juxtaposing various plush toys with fruits and books which look as if they are living creatures awaiting their owner/master’s return. Could it be an allusion to the people awaiting Christmas?
YOU’VE BECOME ETHEREAL TO EVERYONE Clarence Chun 24” x 24” Acrylic on Canvas 2014 SILENT AUCTION ESTIMATE: Ph25k – Php40k STARTING BID: Php20k
Tacloban born artist and art professor Clarence Chun was a Yale University School of Art scholar in 1999 and graduated cum laude in Studio Arts at the University of Houston in 2000. He has exhibited in Houston, New York and Honolulu and had a sold out solo show last year here at ManilART’14. He won the prestigious Artist of Hawaii Award in 2013 besting more than 300 other entries, the first and only Filipino to ever do so. You’ve Become Ethereal to Everyone is the artist’s introspections on relationships and how they are affected by elements such as fame, fortune, speed, time and even memory. This work depicts a series of movements, some blurred others extremely sharp, all masterfully rendered with flawless technique and Chun’s signature strong, clean lines and geometric forms.
DEED OF SALE Buen Abrigo 48” x 36” Mixed Media 2011 SILENT AUCTION ESTIMATE: Php50k – Php80k STARTING BID: Php30k Buen Abrigo is a 28 year old exponent of UP Fine Arts and is a recent winner of the most prestigious art award that can be given to any young artist in our country – the CCP 13 Artists Awards. He has exhibited extensively and successfully here and abroad, and is considered as one of the most promising artist of his generation. To him, art is not just a form of expression or means of livelihood, it is life itself! He never compromises his art to please his viewers and creates what he wants, when he wants. He is the epitome of a passionate artist obsessed with creating art for art sake and nothing else. Deed of Sale is a poignant commentary on how over commercialism has taken over the world and everything is up for sale. From endangered animals to virtues/ideals to the environment, even to human beings themselves, nothing is exempt from this acerbic truth. A grey and gloomy future looms if this remains unchecked.
