Catch the Looking at Your Brain by Means of a Mirror Exhibit Until September 21
Whether you’re an artist or an avid fan of art, the Looking at Your Brain by Means of a Mirror exhibit is surely one that you wouldn’t want to miss.
It’s happening from August 31 to September 21, 2019 at the Artery Art Space, Quezon City.
The “Looking at Your Brain by Means of a Mirror” exhibits works that examine the intersection between craft and concept, creating a diversity of representations.
These representations range from eccentric figuration, portraiture, and other reconstructed manifestations of identity and the self that prompt a patterned abstraction of perception seen from the prevalent manufacturer of experience.
The exhibit presents a trompe l’oeil masterpiece of realism, which reworks the craft to confuse senses to rethink and to assess what is most apparent in art.
Among the artists featured in the exhibit is Julius Bagoyo, who graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Far Eastern University and has shown in galleries such as the Metro Gallery, District Gallery, and the Artery Art Space.
Another featured artist is Nice Buenaventura, who hails from the University of the Philippines Manila, with pieces in the West Gallery, Underground Gallery, and the Mono8 Gallery, to name a few.

Another artist is Jon Cuyson, who studied painting at the University of the Philippines Baguio and has an MFA from The School of the Arts, Columbia University. He also participated in the Skowhegan Artist Residency in Maine. Since 1996, he has shown extensively in the local and international scene, including shows at the Brunei Gallery at the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, Bronx Museum of the Arts NYC, and the UP Vargas Museum.
