Portraits • Rafael Del Casal

May 14 to Jun 1, 2012 • Video Room

In this one-man show, Rafael Del Casal shares to the public a series of commissioned portraits of celebrated Filipina personalities. Sitters for these works include patronesses and promoters of culture such as Luisa Viray, Carmen Tiglao, Hetty Que and Imee Marcos. Capturing subtle nuances in expression and elegant details of dress, Del Casal here demonstrates his own mastery of realistic portraiture and the ability to capture the essential qualities of the people he depicts.
