Heart by Ling Quisumbing Ramilo
While watching the TV coverage of that band's Final Set, I am also looking at the little metropolis of eraserheads assembled by artist Ling Quisumbing Ramilo (which sort of echoes the sea of people at the SMX concert venue when the camera gives a quick sweeping view from the top). Ling is known to have a fascination for blocks of scrap wood and other everyday things, materials that dominate her most recent exhibitions. "I have been working on a series, pencilworks. Isang katutak na pencils," she tells TheSwankStyle. "Siguro mga 30,000 pencils na or more. Since late last year. Kasama sa show sa Manila Contemporary sa April 18. Nagsimula yung series from a piece I did for my Green Papaya show, Domestic Bliss. Drawing board sya na pag binuksan mo, puno ng isang katutak na pencils. Natuwa ako, na-addict. Meditative kasi ang pagtasa. I'm fascinated by everyday objects kasi dami ng possibilities, sa pencil pa lang."
