Four female artists with different perspectives, distinct styles, and unique approaches to art have bonded together to hold a group art exhibition at the White Space Gallery at the Art District, Brgy. Mandalagan, Bacolod City, which opened Friday and will run until Dec. 2.

Titled “Individuality”, the show features the works of Armi Faith Patoc, Anna May Lacson, Mache de la Torre and Wen Quilisadio.  

Guests of honor at the opening were Ret. Marine Major Gen Andre Costales, David Wheeler, Markie Candelario-Wheeler, and Emmanuel Hilado.

De Ta torre was born to a family of artists and her love for painting manifested at a younger age. Under the tutelage of her artist mother, she has been making art since the day she learned to use a pencil and a brush. Predominantly, her subjects include the human form, and flora and fauna, in juxtaposition with other objects and shapes, assembled in whatever she conceptualizes.

Quilisadio was recently awarded as the grand prize winner of Pilot’s INKCredicle Art Contest out of more than 60 contestants from all over Philippines.

She and Patoc are members of the Artisticrew, a group of Negros based artists founded in 2019, with the objective of promoting the value of visual arts  through various visual media and techniques. It also aims to inspire its member’s progress, knowledge and artistic skills.

Patoc is a licensed architect who finds it comfortable using Aquarelle in painting. To her art is a sweet escape, a freedom to create a comfortable environment.

Lacson, on the other hand, was a former banker for almost two decades before she finally started her journey as a visual artist. She loves to express her works in an impressionistic way of painting, and while she has explored different mediums in art, she discovered that the medium she loves to use the most is oil.*
