Gisbert pays homage to the Filipina

Filipino visual artist Maryrose Gisbert mounts solo exhibition, “Tribute to Filipino Women: Power Beyond Reach, and Beauty Beyond What The Eye Can See,” on view from 6 to 19 October 2022 at the ArtistSpace located at Ground Level, Ayala Museum Annex, Makati Avenue corner Dela Rosa Street, Greenbelt Park, Makati City.

The Filipino woman is the light, life, and love that links families, and the source of inspiration for many a tribute. She is also the embodiment of strength, courage, grace, and beauty far beyond what the eye can see. She is the inspiration for the body of work that Gisbert is presenting. Set against brightly-colored and richly-textured canvases, with moods ranging from serious to playful, even whimsical, her subjects possess huge eyes that express a wealth of emotions.

Gisbert hopes this exhibition serves as a proper tribute to the Filipino woman, and likewise encourage the viewers to offer their own.

Beyond the workshops and weekly sessions at The Saturday Group, Gisbert has participated in countless exhibitions and internationally. She also continues to find ways to improve her craft, from taking lessons from art schools and artists whom she considers as masters. She continues to run her home-studio-turned-art classroom called the Creative Hands Art Workshop, where she is the main instructor.
