Opening Reception: Saturday, August 11th, 2018, 6-8pm
Northport, NY– Haven Gallery is pleased to present "Whisperers", a solo exhibition of new paintings by Philippines based artist Mall (May Ann Licudine). "Whisperers" is Mall's first solo show at the gallery and is composed of fifteen new works that chronicle the musings of the artists quintessential female characters as they saunter and pose through worlds filled with flowers, cats, moons and magic. An otherworldly journey of anime stylized girls, garbed in kimonos welcomes you into windswept microcosms where blossoms and leaves blow in the zephyr and their unique elegance reminisces of fairytales and folklore.
May Ann Licudine's art speak intricacy, sophistication, and complexity as manifested in her solo show entitled, "Whisperers". Greatly influenced by Japanese art, she fashioned her own unique style using resin layers to portray three-dimensional illustrations with mixed media. Carefully placing layers upon layers of resin on painted details and the meticulous process of curing the resin and making sure that the surface is pristine makes her artworks refined and urbane. "Whisperers" is a visual and emotional delight portraying Japanese women living in harmony with the elements. They possess the ability to see these elements when they dream. It is a wonderful depiction of class and beauty.
May Ann Licudine is a visual artist and illustrator living in La Union, Philippines. She graduated with a Certificate in Fine Arts-Visual Communications from University of the Philippines, Baguio. She has had several exhibits in Philippines, USA, France, UK and Japan.
