Resty Tica's Temporary Garden in the Sky
Through over a decade, Renaissance Art Gallery has built a reputation as a nurturing ground for emerging abstractionists. Its proprietors Noli and Agnes Romero have been committed to fostering the appreciation of a non-figurative idiom, especially in an art scene that predominantly favors representational paintings.

Aner Sebastian
Abstraction is an art in which “the depiction of real objects or nature has been subordinated or entirely discarded and whose aesthetic content is expressed in a formal pattern or structure of shapes, lines and colors.” It is also called non-representational or nonobjective a term first used by Russian abstractionist, Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944).

“Driven to Abstraction”  will have a special preview from June 6 to 8 (Friday to Sunday) and the opening cocktails is on June 9, 2014 – 6 p.m. at the ART CENTER, 4th Level, Bldg. A, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City. It runs until June 24, 2014.
