Lucell Larawan: Transforming Painting into Stringed Metaphors
In celebration of National Arts Month, Boholano artist Lucell Larawan will be holding his sixth solo exhibition featuring his acrylic mixed-media paintings. In the same vein that his works act as markers along his artistic unfolding, they likewise play as metaphors that dwell on his aspiration and desire for freedom and rootedness.
The artist’s aspiration for freedom is best demonstrated through his recent explorations with thread as centripetal material that binds the set of paintings in the exhibition. He hammered a row of boat nails that outline the fringes of the canvas, around which he stringed mercerized cotton threads that crisscross and hover above the pictorial space. Each thread poetically connects one point of the surface to another. And when seen together as meshes, they make new and enhance the manner the images in the works are presented.
Lucell Larawan: Transforming Painting into Stringed Metaphors” a solo exhibition by Boholano artist Lucell Larawan is exhibited from February 07 – 28, 2023 at the NCCA Gallery.
NCCA Gallery hours are from Mondays to Thursdays, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, and Fridays & Saturdays, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Closed on Sundays.
