Robert Ventura

September 4 – October 25, 2014

Artist: Ronald Ventura

In his latest series of oil paintings, Ronald Ventura meditates on Filipino history through visual and performative culture, reflecting on the history of faith and its expressions in ritual, art, and in the human body itself. Tracing the evolution of iconic motifs in popular visual culture, from the demons of the Middle Ages to the comic book characters of today, Ventura incorporates images of flagellants alongside a swirling host of figures inspired by European Old Master paintings, alongside motifs and texts taken from vintage carnival posters, advertisements, and comic books.
