Visual artist Celeste Lecaroz’s one-woman show

Secrets are the theme of the new one-woman show of visual artist Celeste Lecaroz entitled “Dialogo,” which runs until December 3 at Art Elaan in Ayala Malls Manila Bay.

The exhibit features pastel paintings of young women dressed in Filipiniana attire. The works’ hushed tones complement the subjects of women in various activities that depict secrets, such as: chatting intimately, reading a letter, or in solitary meditation. As the viewers are left to gaze on the subjects’ soft faces, knowing smiles and close proximity, the artist also paints an air of joyful mystery.
