The artists whose works comprised the show Pamunsodat the Mamusa Art Bistro defined the start of the year 2019 as a beginning of a new journey.
Impetuosity may well describe the journey for they anticipate its spontaneity. Hence, they call the show Pamunsod – itsdirection undetermined at this moment and the path for creative expression and art engagement is yet to be outlined.
A common belief was shared by the nine artists regarding the cycle of life by underscoring that once a person’s purpose is fulfilled, life begins anew and so the movement goes on.
“This year, we have taken the first step for a visual movement which aims to inspire others, shared Alex Ordoyo, in a message during the opening of Pamunsod.
Ordoyo, whose piece “Destroyed” earned him the 2018 grand award for the Metrobank Art Design and Excellence Award for Watermedia on Paper category, emphasized that the “group show was intended to offer various medium to the Ilonggo audience; as such, Pamunsod was organized as an art show by artists with different backgrounds and discipline.
Pamunsod offers a small group of works yet boosts an exquisite collection having a good mix of new and not so old works.
