Ambie Abaño will discuss her approach to printmaking and the inquiries in portraiture in line with her solo exhibition Transfigurations on Thursday, 11 July 2013, 2:30 – 4:00 in the afternoon. In Transfigurations, Abaño presents portraits printed on elastic textile, then cut and sewn, warped and crimped, molded and distorted, transforming them into three-dimensional forms and installations.

Ambie Abaño has exhibited widely here and abroad. She was president of the Philippine Association of Printmakers from 2006 to 2012, and currently department chair of Studio Arts at the UP College of Fine Arts. Abaño is recipient of residencies sponsored by Alliance Francaise de Manille and the Asian Cultural Council that led her to exhibit works in Paris and New York.

Admission to the artist talk is free.
