Timeless Swiss Landscapes
Published in conjunction with Manuel D. Baldemor's solo exhibition, Timeless Swiss Landscapes, held at the Ayala Museum in 2012, this catalogue features around 100 paintings and works on paper mostly done by the artist during his three-month residency in Basel, Switzerland in 1994. Baldemors' delicate watercolor washes and fine, pastel shapes delineate Swiss mountainside villages and quaint architecture, while his thick impasto gives texture to the snow-filled steep rise of the majestic Matterhorn. The exhibition also commemorates 150 years of Philippine-Swiss relations, with the opening of the first Swiss consulate in the Philippines in 1862.
