Orion’s Belt • Gino Bueza

Nov 11 to Dec 4, 2014 • Video Room

Gino Bueza’s fourth one-man exhibition since 2013, “Orion’s Belt” presents a suite of new paintings in acrylic on canvas. The paintings demonstrate how Bueza seamlessly renders and combines figurative and graphic elements in his works: producing novel and increasingly abstract juxtapositions of color, pattern and form. The resulting aesthetic combines both the strata of formal textures and layered patterns found in collage and the random, entropic energy exhibited in works of gestural abstraction.

Bueza studied Painting at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts. Bueza was a Grand Prize winner in the 40th Shell Students’ Art Competition (Oil/Acrylic category) in 2007 and a finalist in the 2010 Tanaw: Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Painting Competition and the 2006 and 2005 Shell art competitions.
