Alfonso Ossorio (1916–1990)
Watercolor and ink on arches paper
22 1/4 x 28.9cm (8 3/4 x 11 3/8 in)
Created thirty years after his homecoming to war-torn Victorias, Negros Occidental, this mixed media work shows how New York- based Alfonso Ossorio continued to explore the wax-resist technique he had developed in the Philippines. While retaining the same primitive structure and abstract expressionist line, Ossorio shows maturity and restraint with a more refined palette and more distinct contours.
