Raffy Napay debuts first solo exhibit entitled Ugat
Starting as a painter to now, a crafter, Raffy Napay will have his first solo exhibition at the Silverlens Gallery in Makati from January 13 until February 10, 2018.
With his expertise in art, Napay gathers his creations and collections that are mostly made of sculptures, textiles, and much more. At the exhibit, he’ll also showcase his largest weave painting that measures 8 feet by 42 feet.
The entire space will be filled with vibrant colors, water, flora, roots, and nature. According to the artist himself, the process is a “stream of consciousness flow where materials, subject, and personal experience come together to make up the work.” Ugat, or root in English, sends a message with the knots, twists, and patterns he uses as he breaks away from his usual ways.
Napay has chosen the forest as a symbol of his life: the people, the experiences, all the ups and downs of his life. His interest in nature will ultimately reflect in the roots and sculptures shown at Silverlens.
According to Anna M. Rosete, Ugat is a metaphor for humankind’s interconnectedness, owing to people’s shared experiences and articulating the fact that no matter where people in the world are situated, their personal experiences enable them to take part in a common process of growth and evolution.
