Despite of the short time I had left to work on my part in this piece (because crammer!) and suddenly deciding to change some things about it at the last minute, I very much enjoyed this project. I’m thrilled to share it with you!
Let me quote Kayo‘s write-up about it on his Instagram post:
This mixed media piece is the Carlos + Veronica contribution to Hidden Space’s Halloween group show, “All Hallow Tide.” Nica came up with the concept of working through collage, which is an ongoing theme in her work through 2018. We combined my current exploration with pens, typography, “blockheads,” with her papercutting and watercolor.
I always appreciate the challenge of these group shows. We get to display work side by side with some of the city’s best and most expressive individuals (to name a few: Egg Fiasco, Distort Monsters, Kookoo Ramos, JJ Zamoranos, Blic and Apok). That’s something that pushes us to keep bringing our best.
All Hallow Tide was first created by Erika Yamaguchi and curated by Auggie Fontanilla in 2015 as a group show of different artists. A skull template is given to artists as an invitation for them to render it in their own style through tihe use of their individually chosen medium. This reflects the celebration of the day of the dead that latin americans celebrate the souls of their departed loved ones.
The show opened yesterday during Cubao Expo’s annual Halloween celebration, Cubao Hex, and will be on display at Hidden Space Co for another week. Go and visit when you can!
