Ang Kiukok (1931-2005)

Untitled (Still Life)

1971

Oil on canvas

45 x 29.5 cm (17 3/4 x 11 3/4 in)

Quick Overview

In a stunning departure from his highly geometric and powerfully composed canvases, National Artist Ang Kiukok presents a multidimensional still life of flowers in a vase. The painting is at once both substantial and painterly as Ang flattens the table against the background to allow viewers a full view of the surface on which the vase rests. Mesmerizing layers of impastoed strokes give the illusion of petals extending out of the frame towards the viewer and there is an uncommon zest in his choice and combination of colors, boldly intermixed even as he places a gentle ring of white and green around the edges of the bouquet to distinguish it from the blue background, giving the entire image an effervescent and surprisingly luminous glow, unique in the artist’s body of work.
