Ayala Museum is proud to present an exhibition on the late Filipino sculptor Eduardo Castrillo (1942 – 2016) at the Ground Floor Gallery from 27 April to 4 June 2017 with guest curator Jeannie E. Javelosa.
The show brings focus on the prolific and eventful life of one of the leading artists in the field of sculpture. When he first burst into the Philippine contemporary art scene in 1966, his highly colorful life, his progressive and radical art, and his social-political stand for humanistic values made him a leader, a visionary, and a rebel.
The name Eduardo Castrillo is synonymous with metal sculpture, having produced figurative, historical, and religious monuments, and abstract environmental works, not only in the Philippines but also in other countries such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Brunei Darussalam in Southeast Asia; Switzerland, the Vatican, and Poland in Europe; Guam, North America, and Australia. In the Philippines, Castrillo alone managed to present imposing monuments that tell the story of the courage, heroism, and aspirations of the best of our race.
Eduardo Castrillo: A Prism of Art & Friendships is the third of a series that serves to honor Castrillo’s artistic legacy, as well as the friendships he developed through the years. Lent by the artist’s friends, the objects on display embody facets of the prism that was the sculptor’s life and were chosen to give a representation of the various styles and forms he created in his lifetime.
