And I'm having a solo show!! My first in a long time.
Featuring works from the past decade that have never been before exhibited here in Manila.
Christina Dy unfurls a suite of these drawings that encompass her transition from large-scale format pictures of the seas and skies, to intimate-scaled sketches of nudes, to her more recent exploration of drawing on folded paper that are configured into tangram puzzle pieces. With the myriad scale of her works, they also manifest the different drawing techniques she employs relative to the format and subject of her works – from brooding gray shades of graphite and charcoal of macro views of surfaces, to fine linear renderings of the human anatomy and insect appendages with a mechanical pencil.
Archivo 1984 presents for the first time these drawings that show Christina’s kaleidoscopic practice, as an artist and as a performer/dancer, and breaking frontiers between such.
Christina Dy is a recipient of the CCP 13 Artist Award in 2009, and was shortlisted for the Ateneo Art Awards in 2008 and in 2009. She had been exhibiting since 2003, and was a participant in the Busan Biennale in 2010, in Paris Photo in 2013, in Beyond Frame: Philippine Photomedia in UTS Gallery in Sydney in 2008.
Unfurling The Folds On Her Sunday’s Best is her 15th solo exhibit.
