“Duality” at Galerie Anna

Light and dark. Motion and stillness. Physical and spiritual. Good
and evil. Peace and war. Love and hate. These are states of opposition
all too familiar to humankind, what we have learned to accept as two
sides of a coin. In a tandem exhibition titled “Duality” opening on
August 8 at the Galerie Anna, artists Edwin Ladrillo and Clint Normandia
present two affective states of consciousness at opposing ends of the
emotional spectrum.
Through the outright nakedness of the human body, Ladrillo
discovers epiphanies of spiritual lift-offs from the frank physicality and
vulnerability of the flesh. Through expressive gestures and poses,
deeply ruminative and ultimately distant from the world of reality,
signified by the veils and showers of concealing lines, they seem to
have returned to visibility but still fleeing from contact with the
audience.
In marked contrast, Clint Normandia selects images that deliver
sensations of delight and joy, pride and rapture, charm and cheer,
manifested by his intense and vibrant chromatics. His subjects are very
much aware of their impact and impression on the audience: a beauty
queen glowing in attention and adulation; a tribal chieftain assured in
stance and dignity of his presence, well past his ancestors’ fear of their
souls being ensnared by the camera.
“Duality” will be on view until August 22.
