Onal’s offbeat landscapes exhibit at Galleria Nicolas

MILMAR Onal’s minimalist figures draw calmness highlighting a straightforward intention, his lines meandering up and down, depicting a lifeline of an undiluted flow of energy -- electrifying and unpredictable. The figures remind one of a schematic diagram; specific details, omitted thereby encouraging discourse and making it open to the viewer’s own visual interpretation. 

His angles form a continuous landscape, boundless and infinite, with the artist implying the limitlessness of the human mind. The metallic pieces are mnemonics of the electric energy, movement and sound of the city often displayed in bold bright colors. The works attempt to freeze frame a scene in time, or a moment telling a tale with no beginning and no end.

Abstractionist Milmar Onal is a painting graduate from the University of Santo Tomas. Aside from participating in multiple exhibits, he also worked for TV and theater production. Onal also took several courses in Electronics that led him to develop a practice inspired from his observations of electrical flow, currents and circuitry.

VIsceneTY will be on view until May 24, 2018. Galleria Nicolas is located at the 3/F Art Space, Glorietta 4, Ayala Center, Makati City.
