Charlie Co: Balana
From a series of exhibition catalogs produced by Silverlens Galleries, this features several works done in charcoal on paper by internationally renowned Filipino artist Charlie Co. Borrowing this rich Hiligaynon term for the title of the show, which could either mean as ‘predestination’ or a ‘foreshadowing,’ Charlie Co goes back to the principles of symbolism and myth in drawing out elaborately storied characters out of his imagination.
