Eloquent Simplicity In Wood and Fiber
Two intertwined exhibitions exploring the versatility of wood and fiber as materials for furniture and everyday objects, collectively entitled Eloquent Simplicity in Wood and Fiber. The exhibitions aim to highlight eloquent samples of sculptural forms and functional objects that are either traditional in form or contemporary in design. It showcases contemporary sculptural forms and functional objects and furniture by National Artist Napoleon Abueva and Claude Tayag, as well as everyday objects from the Cordilleras primarily from the collections of Floy Quintos and Armand Voltaire Cating. The show seeks to define the aesthetic sensibilities of the people of the Cordillera mountains and how natural materials such as wood and fiber are used to create unique utilitarian and ritual objects.
