Jose Joya (1931–1995)

Coast of Cavite

1992

Acrylic on canvas

120.5 x 90 cm (47 1/2 x 35 1/2 in)

Quick Overview

In this highly dynamic piece, National Artist Jose Joya merges flat color fields and loose, spontaneous gestural strokes evoking two of the most prominent facets of American Abstract Expressionism. The subject and colors, however, are distinctly Filipino the murky brown, shades of blue-grey, and hints of rust are tones that dominate coastlines both in rural Cavite and the rest of the Philippine archipelago. Capturing both the rugged yet palliative mood of the seaside, earthy tones, refined gradients, and vigorous splashes layer atop and mix together to form one lyrical spectacle climaxing at the center. This seamless marriage of the modern international movement and local landscapes makes this piece a quintessential Joya epitomizing the remarkable oeuvre of the prime pioneer of Philippine abstraction.
