Ramon Orlina's Creation @ the Power Plant Mall dubbed as " Brilliance"

World renowned glass sculptor Ramon Orlina pays tribute to Philippine Independence Day by mounting an exhibition of his latest creations starting June 12, 2012 at the Powerplant Mall.

Dubbed as "Brilliance" and organized by premiere art specialist Gallery BiG in cooperation with PNB-Allied Bank Luxeclusive, this solo show is composed of 32 dazzling crystal sculptures of varying sizes, colors and shapes. Each one a testament to the artist's mastery of his craft and provides a glimpse into his concepts and visions.

His well known green Asahi glass artworks with figurative forms are displayed alongside his more recent abstract creations utilizing colored crystals in amber, amethyst, and cobalt, pink and white, thus "Brilliance" is his most colorful show to date. It also marks the first time that his artworks are being exhibited outside the limited confines of a gallery or museum and into the highly visible atrium of a commercial mall such as the Powerplant in Rockwell.

"We would like the general public to be given the chance to view and appreciate these wonderful Orlina sculptures in a convenient location so that more people can appreciate the depth and talent of one of our country’s finest artists." says Gallery BiG owner Jon Sy. "After all, Independence Day is supposed to be homage to our country's heroes and we do regard many of our Filipino visual artists such as Luna, Hidalgo, Amorsolo, Edades, Botong and Manansala as heroes in their own right.‘Brilliance" is the artist’s way of paying tribute to the brilliance of such Filipinos."

Indeed just a few glances into this marvelous array of brightly lit translucent sculptures can give one the feeling of awe and magnificence. Could our heroes have felt a similar kind of glow as they were shaping our country’s history? The play of light passing thru solid masses of colored crystals is unlike any other sculpture show you will witness anywhere in the world and can easily tempt the viewer into “bringing this sense of Filipino pride home” by making a purchase right there and then. But with the prices of Orlinas steadily rising due to consistently strong demand over the years, one can hardly say that such an art investment would be easy on the pocket.

This is where the support of PNB-Allied Bank Credit Card Corporation comes into the picture. Through its thrust in the luxury goods sector called Luxeclusive, they now offer their cardholders the special privilege of using their PNB-Allied Bank Visa or Mastercard to acquire any of these Orlinas at no interest for up to six months to pay - making it more affordable to do so.

At the end of the day, it matters little whether you plan to buy or not as long as you go out and see this splendid sculpture show, which took several months of careful planning and painstaking preparation before coming into fruition, so that you can experience for yourself an art exhibit like no other and realize how truly brilliant our fellow Filipinos can be.
