Saturday, November 22, 2014
3 – 6 pm   Afternoon tea reception
The artist will be present

ARNDT SINGAPORE is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of Kaloy Sanchez, a young and promising artist based in Manila, Philippines. The artist has participated in a curated Filipino group show at ARNDT earlier this year (Manila: The Night is Restless, The Day is Scornful, curated by Norman Crisologo and held July – August 2014). All The Unspeakable Things will be his first individual appearance with the gallery for which he created five new works in oil on canvas. The artist will be present at the opening reception.

Kaloy Sanchez belongs to the new generation of figurative painters coming from the Philippines, devotes his work to studies of human psychology and collective social experiences. Sanchez works with great sensitivity: through setting his nude figures in semi-private, semi open rooms he gently welcomes us to his models’ sacred spaces and their psychological landscapes. His canvas, mostly kept in monochromatic gray tones, explore the topic of longing, isolation, anxiety, fear and desire.

“(…) The Unspeakable Things” explores rooms: their interiors, their intimations. Behind walls, often shielded from the public, guards are let down, clothes fall to the floor. Masks fall off, or sometimes, masks are put on. Kaloy Sanchez’s paintings examine human frailty within the contect of private spaces. (His) work flirts with the stark and the sublime: each portrait has a story to divulge, with each viewing yielding a deeper secret.”                                                                                                                                                                  Yvette Tan
