The abstract side and style I will exhibit is something that not many people know about.

Mandaluyong City, Philippines—Imahica Art, a new independent gallery based in Mandaluyong City, unveils a rarely seen facet of renowned painter and printmaker Imelda Cajipe Endaya in the exhibit “The Abstractions of Cajipe Endaya.” The show is a collection of elegant, limited modern prints that explore abstractions; this special exhibit runs from July 23 to August 12, 2022.

Imahica Art said, “This solo exhibit is the gallery’s tribute to the modern angle of Cajipe Endaya’s artistry,” whose more representational art she’s known for will be on display at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in September.

“The Abstractions of Cajipe Endaya” features abstracted interpretations of objects familiar to Filipinos, such as salted eggs, rice paddies, fiesta buntings, indigenous patterns, and rural landscapes. These pieces were deconstructed, abstracted, and then simplified using the meticulous printmaking processes from etching to aquatint and collagraph.

“Cajipe Endaya’s cosmopolitan and contemporary style peppered with quaint Filipino touches will appeal even to millennials and the global Filipino in this digital age,” Imahica Art added.

From the ‘60s to the ‘70s, Cajipe Endaya and many other local artists pioneered the search for the Filipino identity in culture and the arts. Cajipe Endaya’s insights on the matter have been ingrained in her art style since then.

An alumna of the University of the Philippines’ visual communication program has a slew of national and international awards under her name, among them were the CCP Centennial Honors for the Arts (2008), Florence Zlowe Memorial Art Award from the American Society of Contemporary Artists, and the Ani ng Dangal from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.

Some of her works are exhibited or part of the private collections of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, National Museum of the Philippines, Met Museum of Manila, Ateneo Arete, National Gallery of Singapore, Okinawa Prefectural Museum, and Fukuoka Art Museum.
