Exhibit Description: ENTABLADO: The Stage of Life
If life was a stage, it would be interesting how actors weave a story with neither a script nor a director. Acala confronts this seemingly challenging yet intriguing reality of life and its many subplots as he paints a variety of actors performing in the stage of their own setting, often with a play of bright and dark hues, reflective of life's rich mix of emotions and undertones.
What is most welcome in Acala's pieces is his fresh approach of using `the stage' as a platform for reinterpretation of old and recurrent themes of friendship, courtship and love. From the ballerina whose eyes are held by her partner's, the flying trapeze chasing his love with a bouquet of flower high up in the air to the jugglers whose joggling act is dependent on the stability of their friendship and trust.
The artist's canvass transforms life and its mundane relationships into an exciting play re-told and re-invented without the rigidity of a script or director. Coming from a simple but artistic town of Paete, Acala has successfully rendered a lighthearted yet mischievous view of life; one that is uncluttered and innocent; where clowns, magicians and acrobats are not afraid to be unmasked, and where childhood memories of the people performing on stage in the plaza during town fiestas are revisited by a more mature pair of eyes but with the same young heart.
