Quick Overview

Blurred beneath his surrounding elements, Ronald Ventura’s man looks surreptitiously over his shoulder towards the unknown. Adept at multilayered imagery, Ventura’s scenes are often psychological in quality, drawing attention to issues such as gender, society and identity.


In Realities: Ronald Ventura, Alice Guillermo notes a sense of nostalgia in Ventura’s depiction of figures, ‘The sepia tonalities evoke memory and the passage of time, but in the intimate personal experience of the artist, they also suggest the color of rusting metal exposed to the elements, an allusion to the artist’s growing up years in the depressed area of the fishing village of Navotas with the corroded galvanized iron roofing of the shanties.”
