Infinitely Near by Luca Bray

Infinitely Near: A Luca Bray Exhibit
 

Luca Bray cannot be contained. From his home in Brescia, Italy he travelled to Mexico and stayed there for six years without even a telephone to communicate with the outside world. Well, he survived another four years there, now with a phone. He then decided to move to New York and then to Australia. He is now in the Philippines after spending time in Shanghai and Cambodia.  

Bray’s world as a young boy was a small village called Orzinuovi. He has since circled the world and his art has made it small, its nooks and corners “Infinitely Near.” 

For his Philippine debut, Bray brought his oil on paper, wood and canvas of gestural abstracts of black and muted blue, orange and gray with calligraphic messages in charcoal and pencil. (I remember how my daughter Maningning has also used gestural strokes for her 44’ x 8’ landmark mural, “Soliloquy.”) His message is one though the forms and contents he presents vary in every country he exhibits – Spanish in Mexico, Chinese characters in Shanghai, and Filipino in the Philippines.  

His paintings breathe zest and energy to life. Within him, he says, is an insatiable desire to wrest a universe within every fragment of his art. He tells a different story in every painting that he does. His favorite, a painting all in black, is entitled “I have no more space in the ocean, I will now try the sky.”

Bray found his calling when at age eleven, he painted a chicken using up all the paint in a tube. He decided right there and then that he would be an artist.  
Four years of basic art from the B. Bembo Art Liceo in Cremona and another four years from Milan’s Brera Fine Arts Academy did not make him a figurative artist, even when he graduated with highest honors and learned the art of great artists like Klimt, Igor and Mondrian. He gravitated towards non-representational, avant garde painting reminiscent of the works of the irreverent Piero Manzoni who, like Bray, came from Soncino, Cremona, and whom he considers the greatest of artists.
Why abstract? “Because I can dream, I can make stories with my fantasy forever evolving.” 
Here comes Bray’s passion, his joie de vivre, his mantra of living every second of his life in the here and now. And his art is a lot like him – whimsical, fragmentary, yet passionate and alive.

BRAY is a recipient of numerous awards. He was a finalist in the International Celeste Prize in New York in 2010 and Aesthetica Award in the United Kingdom in 2014. He was a guest artist at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai and an artist-in-residence at the University of New South Wales in Australia.
He has exhibited worldwide, including the 54th Venice Art Biennale. His works can be found in numerous public collections, including the Jumex Collection in Mexico City and Los Angeles, Antiguo Palacio del Arzobispado Museum, the National Palace Museum, Sinaloa Modern Art Museum, Morelia Contemporary Art Museum, Amparo Museum and the Bancomer Cultural Foundation, all in Mexico, as well as Daniela Chappard Foundation in Venezuela, and the Government of Socino in Italy.
He has also works in private collections in France, Italy, Spain, San Salvador, Venezuela, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada as well as the cities of New York, Washington D.C., and Chicago in the United States.

Unsettled

The key to art lies in breaking its rules and redefining it. For centuries movements in art have been brought about by a reaction to the current norms of society and the realities of its present: from the painters of the Impressionist era trying to free themselves from the confines of Realism, to the Italian Neorealism’s gritty rebuttal to the films of classical Hollywood.

Relentless: A Two Person Show

Annie Concepcion and Leny Leonor explore works that thrive on themes related to the practice of Hunting. Grotesque images of animals are presented: hauntingly beautiful situations where subjects become predators and/or preys. Relentless takes the task of investigating one’s ceaseless obsession to hunt: the need to force one’s strength over another, resulting in submission or death.

N/A : a group show

When the present address becomes too muddled with white noise and too many conflicting meanings—to the point that it loses all meaning—the best place to retreat to, is nowhere. Not within nor in between definite places, but an entirely new space where all the previous confines are Not Applicable.

If you were to sell your soul, how would you name your price? Would you condone the Devil’s haggling? Or sweeten your deal with a discount? If paid by credit card, are air miles earned? Will it come with a lifetime warranty? Does the government demand VAT on the sale of souls? What’s the policy on returns? And gift-wrapping… will that cost extra?

    Joe Henson, aged 26, is quite new to the professional theater world but not with performing on stage.  Coming from a musically inclined family, he has been exposed to  music at a young age and has experience with the stage at 14. The vast majority of his exposure has been in singing in church and performing at Sunday school Christmas productions. He found his passion for theater and the arts in high school when he joined the drama club while he lived in Malaysia. It was there where he tried his hand in script writing, stage management, and directing for the following productions Around the World in 80 Days (2006) , Enchanted (2007), and Arianna (2008). In 2007, he also joined his first Hiphop Dance Competition and bagged 2nd place with his group. He then continued to perform with local Malaysian hiphop group, Danzity till he graduated high school in 2009.

    In college, Joe ventured into the indie-music scene of Manila by performing in several gigs with his friends as a solo artist and doing duets with other up-and-coming artists. He did this while pursing his degree in Behavioral Science and later on he finished his post-graduate studies in DLSU. In 2013, he stopped performing and became a full-time student. After graduating, he then pursued a 9 to 5 job in Public Relations and events and eventually got involved in community work.  Joe is currently freelancing in various projects and events while getting more involved in the ministry of his church. His involvement in I Remember A Boy will be his first musical performance since high school . Regardless of where his path takes him, he believes that he will always have a passion for the arts.

    Mariella Laurel is a freelance performing artist who also finds joy in Directing, Film production work and teaching Musical Theatre for children. She’s been gracing the stage through countless opportunities that started at young age of 9. Sparking her interest for musical theatre was her first professional role in a musical as Crystal in Floy Quintos’ Lives. With that growing passion for theater, she actively participated in Brent International School Manila’s voice and dance trainings, sang for the choral and performed in annual productions, such as The Fantasticks as Luisa, Pippin as Catherine, Godspell as Robin, and Grease as Marty. She was a singer and officer of De La Salle Innersoul, De La Salle University - Manila’s Pop Vocal group, while completing her BA in Communication Arts.  Since graduating in 2015, her most notable theater work include Shrek The Musical as Baby Bear, Villager, Tap Rat and Dulocian (ATEG, 2014), Lagablab as Chayong (AP, 2016), A Christmas Carol as Scrooge’s Mother/Poulterer (9 Works Theatricals and Globe Lives, 2016 and 2017), Baby B as Baby B (AP, 2017) and Prelude to Macbeth as Lorna Stewart (AP, 2017).  Apart from stage performances, she lends her voice for TV and Radio advertisements, hosts and performs for corporate events, acts for short films and television. I REMEMBER A BOY marks her debut as Director and being able to do this production again in 2018 truly leaves her even more grateful and determined to make her mark in this industry!
