Where we feel safest

‘Dialogo’ by Celeste Lecaroz

Painter Celeste Lecaroz burst into the local arts scene a few years ago with large acrylic portraits in spontaneous realism, popularized by Austrian painter Voka. Lecaroz’s take featured mostly Filipino cultural icons bathed in the whimsical colors and swept in the gestural strokes of the style.

In Dialogo, the artist’s seventh solo exhibition, Lecaroz showcases new works of a special series she began in 2019 about sisterhood, using only pastel, which in itself consociates her with an exclusive club.
