The sacred and the mythical, the physical and the erotic,
the magical and the mundane, the religious and the profane, and music and
song all permeate the art of Filipina artist Agnes Arellano. Drawing from
rich personal experience and an extraordinary range of influences, she
makes some of the most dramatic art in Asia.
Best known for surrealist and expressionist work in plaster (cast and
directly modelled), bronze, and cold-cast marble, Arellano's work tends
to stress the integration of individual elements into one totality or "inscape".
She has participated in international group exhibitions in Berlin, Fukuoka,
Havana, Johannesburg, New York, Brisbane and Singapore.
