Inventing Quotidian Monsters: Bjorn Calleja/Doktor Karayom/Ryan Jara/Wyndelle Remonde: A Conversation with Carlomar Daoana and Norman Crisologo
From this crop of artists featured in the Special Exhibitions, a commonality of styles and themes emerges—from the expressive dynamism in their works to the distortions of human figures to the unstinting commitment of portraying the “ugly.” Does inventing quotidian monsters a nascent trend, or has it been there along? What are their shared affinities and aspirations? How does technology aid the creation of their works? Amid the chaos and uncertainty in the world, what ideas do they hope that their works to contribute?
Norman Crisologo and Carlomar Daoana will converse with Bjorn Calleja, Doktor Karayom, Ryan Jara, and Wyndelle Remonde on their creative strategies, their common influences, as well as their radical figurations that constitute some of the most striking images in Philippine visual arts.
