The University of the Philippines Vargas Museum (UPVM) together with the Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development (CANVAS) present Doll Eyes featuring paintings by Joy Mallari inspired from the story written by Eline Santos. The exhibition will open on 10 December, Friday, 4pm, at the North and South Wing galleries of the Vargas Museum.

Doll Eyes is a story of Tin who searches for her missing friend Ella through the busy and treacherous streets of Quiapo. The author, Santos, initially wove the story from the first large-scale painting created by Mallari, and in turn, Mallari again painted another set of works that best expresses Doll Eyes, thus the conversation between literature and the visual arts. Further dialogue takes place when photographs of children collected by Jorge Vargas are juxtaposed with the images in Mallari’s paintings and texts in Santos’s narrative.

Coinciding with the exhibit is a retrospective of CANVAS’s previous publications. With their deft hands and distinct points of view, artists Romeo Forbes, Elmer Borlongan, Farley del Rosario, Plet Bolipata, Rodel Tapaya, Ivee Olivares-Mellor, Serj Bumatay, Jose John Santos III, Roel Obemio, Liza Flores and Anthony Palomo brought stories to life and adorned the covers and pages of CANVAS’s storybooks. These artworks served as the inspiration for the Romeo Forbes Children’s Story Writing Competition, CANVAS’s yearly endeavor to seek out Filipino talent and forge creative collaborations across artistic sensibilities.

Exhibition runs until 15 January 2011.
