SILVERLENS invites you to ‘Balik-Loob’, ALFREDO ESQUILLO’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and one of the highlights of his silver anniversary celebration as an artist. The show opens on 11 August 2018, 6 – 9 PM and will be on view until 8 September 2018.
"The show revisits Esquillo’s fluency in the medium of oil-on-paper, which the artist methodically began exploring at the beginning of the millennium. Characterized by a monochromatic luminosity and a spare aesthetic, the works nonetheless embody the highly symbolic visual language that Esquillo has cultivated through the years.
For Esquillo, the concept of “loob” signifies not mere interiority but a structure of compulsions and motivations through which the “labas”—the external reality—may be made manifest. As such, the works are not simply reflective of a mere voyage to the interior of self but an active, radical acknowledgment of the shifting zones of the real as it is being constantly transformed and re-transformed by the insights one gains as being embedded in the world" (Carlomar Arcangel Daoana)
