Currently on Exhibit:

by Leonard Aguinaldo
17 April to 3 June 2018

Baguio-based artist Leonard Aguinaldo has established a solid reputation as observer and chronicler of the life and traditions of the Cordillera. His rubber cut works are a commentary on both the dynamic and unchanging aspects of highland culture.

Time+Lapse features recent artworks using different mediums and themes that illustrate a personal narrative: a progression or snapshots of events that left an indelible mark in the artist’s psyche.

The present collection in BenCab Museum’s Gallery Indigo is not only about the images but also about the use of various materials and the time spent during experimentation as part of the art-making process. Varied effects and the element of surprise in the final outcome give the effort and results added meaning and a deep sense of satisfaction to the artist.

Aguinaldo has had various exhibitions in Baguio and Metro Manila, as well as in Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, and Japan. He has won prestigious awards including the Juror’s Choice of the Philippine Art Awards, the Grand Prize of the ASEAN Art Awards, and the Thirteen Artists Award of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. He was also granted a two-month art residency at the Vermont Studio Center.
