2014 Art Fairs

Silverlens Galleries participated in Art Fair Philippines in February 2014, presenting the works of its stable of artists, and joined Art Basel Hong Kong in May presenting the works of Patricia Perez Eustaquio, Yee I-lann, Maria Taniguchi, Pio Abad and Hanna Pettyjohn.

Figure Babel is a series of drawings of design proposals for objects. Configured formally as towers of geometric shapes that conceal detailed drawings of common subjects of still life such as game and flowers, the works serve as commentary for the consumer market’s obsession with both modernism and tradition, minimalism and excess, marrying the contrasting sensibilities in one mythical form.
