between the sea and the sky
March 26 - May 2
Opening reception on March 26, Thursday, 6pm

SLab (Silverlens Lab) presents between the sea and the sky, new large drawings by Christina Dy. The show will have its opening reception on March 26, Thursday at 6pm. Last year, CD traveled to Australia to create a site-specific drawing in Beyond Frame: Philippine Photomedia at the University of Technology-Sydney Gallery. between the sea and the sky draws from CD’s amazed experience with the open spaces, both parks and beaches, that are possible within an urban sprawl as exemplified by Sydney, a stark contrast with Manila’s gray urban congestion where the artist lives. CD elaborates, “Every spare moment was spent outdoors—at parks looking at the sky, or at the beaches which were just 30-minute bus rides away. I have never seen that much sky, or that much sea, before. Not in that frequency and not in that kind of vastness.”

An artist that continues to challenge herself, Christina Dy has been creating large-scale charcoal works that push the boundaries of the medium. Her drawings, are both large and intimate, reminiscent of seeing someone up close for the first time. Her first solo show in Silverlens Gallery, Curtains Matching Carpet, was part of the exclusive shortlist of artists for the 2008 Ateneo Art Awards. In 2009, Dy was named one of the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ 13 Artists Awardees.

between the sea and the sky by Christina Dy runs from March 26 to May 2, 2009 at SLab (Silverlens Lab). Dy will be giving an artist talk on April 18, Saturday, from 3-5pm between the sea and the sky will be shown along with Neal Oshima at Silverlens and Mac Valdezco at 20Square.
