See for Yourself Katrina Cuenca’s Expressionist Artworks at ArtistSpace from May 31 to June 13
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS is a solo exhibition of Filipino visual artist, Katrina Cuenca. It will be on view from May 31 to June 13, 2022 at the ArtistSpace.
Organized by Pinto Art Museum, the exhibition highlights the artist’s commitment not in describing the world, but in creating an alternate magical realm to it. She achieves this in her works through color combinations that beguile the eye, the resplendent forms that provide access to quiet and contemplation, and the simplicity of her painterly gestures that unlock the deepest corners of the imagination. She extends further her commitment to this transportive place in the exhibition.

While referencing Lewis Carroll’s literary masterpiece, Through the Looking Glass provides a subtler introduction to phantasmagoria in which the viewer, just like Alice, may frolic and take everything in: sculptural biomorphic forms appearing to waver and undulate, paintings responding to light in a multiplicity of ways, flashes of projection swimming onto the gallery walls, and a scent in the air evoking a memory of a garden full of flowers as soft music plays in the background. By tapping all the senses of the viewer, Cuencaenvisions a portal that is both as a respite and an escape through which anyone may enter.
