Philippines / Artinformal
JC Jacinto (b. 1985) has been slowly moving from painting mostly organic subjects to using actual organic materials for his new take on painting. This mirrors his earlier shift from painting figures to painting apparitions, if not abstractions, of these same figures. His interest in the autonomous life of rocks, trees, and minerals and their inherent capacity to record their lives and the passage of time figure prominently in recent exhibitions such as A Crack in Everything (2018) at Artinformal and Independent As The Sun (2018) at Art Stage Singapore. He received his arts education from the University of the Philippines. In 2014, he completed a residency at the Abu Dhabi Art Hub. In 2019, he was shortlisted for the Fernando Zobel Prize in the Ateneo Art Awards for his solo exhibition A Crack in Everything (2018).
JC Jacinto will be presenting his works at Artinformal.
