Ang Kiukok (1931–2005)

Still Life with Table

1970

Oil on canvas

76.2 x 101.6 cm (30 x 40 in)

Quick Overview

A magnificent tableau of National Artist Ang Kiukok’s Figurative Expressionism, this still life focuses on rigidity of line through a palette of primary colors. Working under the tutelage of Vicente Manansala, the artist learned to reject the confines of the objective world and adapt mutliple viewpoints into his work. Taking the visual language of cubism and adapting it to what is commonly accepted as a classical subject matter of the tablescape, Kiukok reduced detail to geometry yet kept signifiers that still point to certain realities--the sharp corners of a table, the contours of a bowl, the smoothness of a surface and the glistening of fruit.
