Dream, travel–inspired works to be exhibited
by Press release

Visual artist A.R. Laigo, or Raphael Laigo from Seattle, Washington, will have a solo exhibition of paintings at the Victor Oteyza Community Art Space (Vocas) Gallery starting Jan. 14 to Feb. 10.

Laigo describes the dream and travel-influenced abstracted symbolist works as displaying themes of retrievalism (of what has been lost, stolen, or forgotten); and balance of positive and negative energies, lifestyle, societal taboo, metaphysics, and spiritualism of a cross cultural identity. Progressive ideas reclaimed from antiquity are present, and a self-protective personal culture is also displayed.

The artist has resided in Baguio City since 2015, spending most of his time painting and building relationships with the local creative community. He has also traveled around Luzon, soaking up knowledge about the Philippines, its life and culture, or where it is available. 

The title of the exhibition is “Discussions,” because Laigo hopes that the work displayed may spark some thought or dialogue that could help in the shift of perspectives, and quite possibly make the audience freer. He also likes listening and exchanging ideas with folks; thus, the chosen title. He may or may not also display a performance art piece, which could also serve as an elaboration to the aesthetic labors.

The exhibition is open to the public. Vocas Gallery is located at the 5th floor of L’Azotea Bldg., 108 Session Road, Baguio City.

Inquiries may be forwarded to May-Ann Siblagan at 446-0108 and 0939-912-7266 or
