Promising young visual artist Regina Margarita “Ina” Jardiolin unveils her latest 13-piece collection in Stripped: A Solo Exhibit, whicah runs from October 5 to 20 at Kaida Contemporary Gallery in Quezon City.
Her works explore the landscape of the human body, imbuing it with interesting touches of whimsy and fantasy. In each piece, the 25-year old graduate of Painting from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts bravely combines the mundane and ethereal, for a collection that is at once familiar and novel.
More importantly, Jardiolin presents her take on femininity and masculinity. Through her works, rendered meticulously using a bold color palette, she questions society’s ideals of beauty, sex, and gender roles, while at the same time inviting the viewer to embrace both male and female energies.
Kaida Contemporary Gallery is located at 36 Sct. Santiago corner Sct. De Guia Streets, Quezon City.
