What is art in a woman’s perspective? An exhibit by the ladies of the Pasakalye artist group explores just that.
Their art show, entitled “In Her Point of View,” is on display at the Baguio Country Club. The six women of the art group, namely Gladys Anne Laciste, Alma Elvita Mirador Maniago, Cara Bruno, Jo-anne Bray Siadto, Raquel Diokno, and Jenny Marsha Agtani, show us the world in their eyes.
There are themes of beauty, motherhood, friendship and love, but there are also undertones of darkness and mystery, showing how multidimensional a woman’s world is.
Among our favorite paintings is an acrylic piece by Jenny Marsha Agtani entitled, “Come With Me.” Its otherworldly feel simply reaches out to the subject and the viewer, enticing them to jump into waters shrouded in mystery.
“Sa Pagitan ng Paglubog at Pagsikat ng Araw” (roughly translated: Between Sunset and Sunrise) by Jo-anne Siadto is a wonderful minimalist painting of a woman bringing color to a man’s life as she touches his hand.
In today’s issue-ridden era where public breastfeeding is suddenly (and for some reason) frowned upon, Jenny Marsha Agtani’s “Julianna’s Love”, breaks the stigma with this stunning painting. And this is everything we need right now.
What makes Pasakalye even more inspiring is that their art comes with a cause. In this exhibit, they hope to raise funds for dialysis patients. Not only do these women have beautiful eyes that see the world in different hues, but they also have beautiful hearts.
