ArtistSpace Presents Sweet Disposition Exhibition on March 8
In a world that is becoming increasingly digital and full of screens, it is refreshing to experience what is real and tangible.
Remind yourselves to find beauty in ordinary things as ArtistSpace presents SWEET DISPOSITION on March 8 at Ayala Museum in Makati. It is the first solo exhibition of visual artist Mykie Concepcion that is sure to capture the innocence of the youth.
Mykie Concepcion’s realistic paintings and drawings represent moments that people might take for granted. She uses a variety of mediums, primarily oil paint, watercolor paint, graphite pencil, and charcoal.
Her works are mainly realistic, with hints of colorful impressionism taken from the artist’s love for Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Vincent van Gogh. The artist also enjoys graphical elements that are achieved in her rubber cut prints.
Certainly, Mykie finds happiness in painting the things she loves. If her works manage to make someone smile or find joy in them, then she believes she has fulfilled her role as an artist.
