Geraldine Javier and At Maculangan: Green Comes Out Of Blue But Is Richer Than Blue

Valentine Willie Fine Art is delighted to present "Green Comes Out Of Blue But Is Richer Than Blue" a unique exhibition by Geraldine Javier and At Maculangan that stages a dialogue between photography and painting. The advent of photography, in mid-19th century, has not only usurped painterly concerns with truthful representation but has also introduced different optical perspectives, which in turn, allow painters to revise and invent new visual language. Similarly, early art photography was deeply indebted to the pictorial aesthetic of traditional painting. This exhibition affirms and extends upon a tradition of exchange and cross-influence. It looks at how our contemporary experience is translated into painting by Geraldine Javier and photography by At Maculangan. Both their works evince a keen insight into the cultural forces that shape the social experiences of Filipinos today. Yet, it is by positioning them together in a space that calls them into conversation with each other that issues and topics ranging from artistic representation to cultural aesthetic are fore-grounded. "Green Comes Out Of Blue But Is Richer Than Blue" is an exceptional exhibition that will enhance and enrich our understanding of both the conflicting and shared aesthetic sensibilities in painting and photograph.
