Garbo Sa Kabisay-an

Mugna Gallery | Buglasan Festival Committee 2023
Valencia, Negros Oriental, Philippines
It is truly a magnificent convergence when the culture and tradition of a place is met with enthusiasm and perseverance to be photographed and documented, and with this year’s competition and winners, it was only obvious that Negros Oriental is very much home to the people’s pride in their heritage which in turn is manifested towards a bigger pride — the Garbo sa Kabisay-an.

Pieces Align

Jomir Tabudlong
Mugna Gallery
Valencia, Negros Oriental, Philippines
Classically-trained painter Jomir Tabudlong’s practice largely revolves around that: the lessons of classical painting and its continuing legacy among today’s artists. While his recent body of work displays adeptness in the figurative sense of subject matter, his art also employs the use of lines in various lengths and colors. This motif recalls his time as an art student, where lines were one of the elements he was most challenged by.

Onion Kids – Homecoming

Hersley-Ven Casero
MUGNA Gallery
Valencia, Negros Oriental, Philippines
Two months after the fair in Manila, Mugna Gallery restages the exhibition to extend its viewership and influence. Interestingly, what makes these photographs resonate well is that while they are the Onion Kids; we, the viewers, are the same. Life imitates art, and whether happy or sad, Onion Kids are always crying.

Onion Kids

Hersley-Ven Casero
Art Fair Philippines 2023
The Link, Ayala Center, Makati City, Philippines
Hersley-Ven Casero is a street photographer and visual artist seasoned by the saline hues and aromas of his hometown of Dumaguete in the island of Negros. For a creative mind, nothing beats the rich and colorful innocence of a coastal city, compact enough to wander afoot and gentle enough to embrace as if it were the last paradise on earth.

The Great Little Hunter

Words by: Ian Rosales Casocot | Art by: Hersley-Ven Casero
Mugna Gallery
Valencia, Negros Oriental, Philippines
A narrative unlike most, “The Great Little Hunter” is a story that chronicles the fantastical adventure of young Ngayam. As bedtime comes around, his fear of the dark transforms his bedroom into a tropical forest, in which he valiantly encounters some of Philippine mythology’s greatest monsters – Wakwak, Sigbin and even Tikbalang.

Hemrod Duran: New Work

Hemrod Duran
Mugna Gallery
Valencia, Negros Oriental, Philippines
This exhibition invites you to look at contemporary terracotta sculpture by dis-engaging the notion of tradition or the expectation of a long-established practice. If there is tradition transmitted through the hands of Herod Duran, they take the form of a potter’s wheel and a set of tools handed down by his father and grandfather.
