His well known green Asahi glass artworks with figurative forms are displayed alongside his more recent abstract creations utilizing colored crystals in amber, amethyst, cobalt, pink and white, thus "Brilliance" is his most colorful show to date. It also marks the first time that his artworks are being exhibited outside the limited confines of a gallery or museum and into thehighly visible atrium of a commercial mall such as the Powerplant in Rockwell.
"We would like the general public to be given the chance to view and appreciate these wonderful Orlina sculptures in a convenient location so that more people can appreciate the depth and talent of one of our country’s finest artists." says Gallery BiG owner Jon Sy. "After all, Independence Day is supposed to be a homage to our country's heroes and we do regard many of our Filipino visual artists such as Luna, Hidalgo, Amorsolo, Edades, Botong and Manansala as heroes in their own right. "Brilliance" is the artist’s way of paying tribute to the brilliance of such Filipinos."
At the end of the day, it matters little whether you plan to buy or not as long as you go out and see this splendid sculpture show,which took several months of careful planning and painstaking preparation before coming into fruition, so that you can experience for yourself an art exhibit like no other and realize how truly brilliant our fellow Filipinos can be.
“Brilliance”will be on display until June 24, 2012. For inquiries please call 666.7755 or visit www.gallerybig.com
