Witness a Celebration of Motherhood at the Heartfelt Art Exhibit

Heartfelt, an art exhibit celebrating mother's love was opened in SM Aura Premier last May 12, 2019, right in time for the celebration of Mother's Day. It features different types and kinds of artworks that are related to Mothers and motherhood. It is open until May 20, 2019 and is hosted by Galerie Raphael.

At Heartfelt, Fifteen (15) artists explore the beauty, strength, and quiet resilience that is inherent in the art of mothering and motherhood. The works delve deeper into the experiences more than the socially imposed images of the celebrated mother. Responding to the commemoration of these women, the participating artists interpreted the contours and edges of motherhood into a visual experience which is intended to remind the audience of the complex energies of these special females that are life-altering in many ways.

A mother has symmetry in her essence - a physical and emotional imperative. The result is soft organic lines that, hopefully, point towards beauty --- yet simultaneously suggest an indirect solidity. The artists consciously created a wordless combination of vigor,  intricacies in emotions, and camaraderie that often is expressed from one woman to another.

More than an observance, Heartfelt investigates the shifting re-interpretations of motherhood as subject matter in the world of arts. This exhibit identifies the historical models of motherhood, the role of feminism, and gender discourse and its shifting notions. This is examined in relation to complex hierarchies regarding the domestic and professional sphere.

The participating artists aspire to make viewers feel the complexity of motherhood, including a mother's vulnerability and her innate strength, a person who nurtures - the same way as artists nurture the audience imaginations.

Heartfelt is an exhibition of works in celebration of Mother's Day by National Artist Federico Aguilar - Alcuaz, Juvenal Sanso, Dominic Rubio, Ombok Villamor, Toym Imao, Marge Organo, Aljo Pingol, Caress Banson, Nap Limaten, and Randy Roa.
