The Negros Museum is currently showcasing the first solo exhibit of Roger Salvarita, a Negrense visual artist, entitled Woman in Women which runs from March 10 to April 10 at the Phinma Gallery.
“Gallery walls will be filled with women in diverse roles of society which makes this exhibition unique from my former exhibits. Within the folds of these women collection lays iconic beauties and personalities that will bring crowds to reminiscence,” said Salvarita.
Survived as one of the 80’s cinema painters, Salvarita had worked on many cinema paintings in Bacolod that engraved his skills in cinema style painting giving his works a realistic look as what is needed in these kinds of projects.
The Star for All Seasons, the UN Goodwill Ambassador, the Queen of Philippine Movies, these are just a few of the women Salvarita chose to deliver in his signature style that gives a direct and bold attack to painting.
As a way to present his original cinema style at the same time commemorate women, Salvarita gives his audiences a way to cherish the days when cinemas weekly present paintings for publicity rather than posters and the reign of women media icons of significance.
In this collection, the artist walks back to the dimension of his lifetime where theaters hire artists for one reason only—to give the public a taste of what is to come within theater walls where the moving marquee of pictures are shooting in front of their eyes.
The Negros Museum is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 10AM to 7PM.
