A Diver’s Tale

As factures of memories, motives, and intents, contemporary artist Mike Garcia’s pieces for A Diver’s Tale at the NCCA Gallery in September 2022 are synaptic relays of sums and parts.

Mike introduces us to his version of El Nido, Palawan — the place still a common synecdoche of our nation-state for tropical beauty, rest, and biodiversity. Mike’s works hold a promise, as they are products that the artist wills to matter, to exist: We as viewers have the ability to change viewpoints if we are willing.

A Diver’s Tale is presented as a way to keep remembrances, featuring a protagonist based on the artist’s father who, like the former, loved the world of water. As the artist is a father himself and also an art teacher, Mike’s works relay a calm yet steady confidence: His explorations of forms, contexts, and languages are nonetheless evidence of the regenerative expansion and conscious refinement of his art practice.
