FRACTALS by Edwin Wilwayco

Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea is pleased to present FRACTALS, an exhibition of new works by artist, Edwin Wilwayco at the Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea gallery (3rd Floor, Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City).

The exhibit dubbed “FRACTALS” is described by the writer, Josephine Fatima Martins as “a series” in which “Edwin Wilwayco animates his continued explorations in actualizing conceptual and material holism”.

Martins further added that “similar to the artist’s previous visual constructions, Fractals are visceral paintings demonstrating the root plasticity and versatility of paint. At the same time, they are objective abstraction in that they reference forms in nature.

They follow the modern maxim: distortion and denaturalization of reality. Visual eloquence is achieved by alternating grades of form simplification and complexity.” The effect of which is a “deeply layered textural volume and vibratory space.”
