Visage by Aam Nacianceno

Booth #367

Artist Bio:
Michael Adams Nacianceno always paints in achromatic way.

Replete of all other colors, he focuses on the rawness of the emotions and the thoughts of his subjects. This made this artist, a genius in his own right. As one article about Nacianceno read:

“Nacianceno will, in time, belong to that illustrious roster of TUP graduates who are now making waves, not only in the Philippine art scene, but also abroad. This roster includes Lynyrd Paras, Mark Andy Garcia, Froilan Calayag, and Dex Fernandez. These four, though proponents of radically different styles, all exhibited early in their career the same tendency to be icon-smashers, flaunting their irreverence all around, and yet still earned for themselves the kudos that the truly gifted deserve. Nacianceno is almost there. All he needs to do to be deemed a peer of the four is for him to continue on polishing his craft, and also perhaps to be consistently loyal to his palette – like Lao. Nacianceno’s… paintings are achromatic, yes—but it doesn’t mean that they are colorless.”

In truth, Nacianceno paints with all the colors of the Universe, only simplified. Quoting the French poet and one of the leading figures of the Surrealist Movement, Louis Aragon (03 October 1897 – 24 December 1982):

“Light is meaningful only in relation to darkness, and truth presupposes error. It is these mingled opposites which people our life, which make it pungent, intoxicating. We only exist in terms of this conflict, in the zone where black and white clash.”

Having exhibited here and abroad, Nacianceno is one of the leading contemporary artists that the Philippines has in this point in time.
