Quick Overview

Nature and life flow in a seamless synergy, connecting and
growing amongst each other in a graceful yet serendipitous cycle.
Avian figures flock around a canvas of greens, diving gracefully
about the abstract forms. In their flight, they merge with the verdant
shapes - no shape is disturbed, showing a world where all is
balanced. The visual cacophony of repeat colors and syncopated
patterns evokes the qualities of music - a cantata. A pioneering
stalwart of the modernist movement in Philippine visual arts,
National Artist Hernando R. Ocampo encapsulates the substance
of nature itself - free yet sound, in simple yet dynamic abstracted
masses. The artist brings in a new reality, one that, while still
reflective of a palpable physicality, is transmuted into defined
shapes that represent an essence beyond the phenomenon. Green
figures then, though abstract, still bring a feeling of familiarity,
emitting an innate connection to the world familiar.
