Romeo Tabuena (1921–2015)

Untitled (Carabao)

1958

Oil on plywood

45 x 60 cm (17 3/4 x 23 3/4 in)

Quick Overview

Painted only three years after the artist moved permanently to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, this oil on wood work by Romeo Tabuena reflects a diverse merging of influences: a lyrical brushwork inspired by traditional Chinese paintings, a carabao scene reminiscent of the rural areas in the Philippines, and an expressionist style through the simplified yet defined figures. The characters emerge amidst a translucent, abstract background with overlapping hues of brown and orange, as if they are passing through an undefined path. The piece is a testament to Tabuena’s imitable quality of fusing elements from the varied places and cultures, giving birth to his distinct style and cementing his role as one of the forerunners of modernism in the Philippines.
