• Bugaoan, Yamagata, Lluch define life through solo exhibits


    The adage “Life is what you make it,” has been around since time immemorial but what really defines life?
    For the whole month of July, Artinformal gallery presents three artists exploring ideas of the self, its journey, and ultimately, the age-old question of “What does it mean to live?”

    The Main Gallery will house layers of abstraction and biomorphic forms, parts of a visual dialogue that delves deep into raw emotions. Underscoring life’s constant transformation, Mars Bugaoan, in his exhibit “Becoming,” invites visitors to confront varied perceptions on vulnerability.

    In the Big Room, Kurt Lluch challenges his audience in “Aspects” to define their lives strip off the roles that normally define humans and in some ways the only aspect that makes them who they are as individuals.

    Finally, the Inner Room will exhibit handmade paper works that evoke the action of birth to the inescapable end. Atsuko Yamagata guides visitors through this cycle of revival in “Breathing, Breeding, Blowout.”
