Event Details

Elaine Navas – ‘What Did The Tree Learn From The Earth To Be Able To Talk to the Sky’ 

30 June – 20 July 2022 

Silverlens, Manila, Philippines 

Silverlens presents a new solo exhibition by Elaine Navas entitled ‘What Did The Tree Learn From The Earth To Be Able To Talk With The Sky’. This upcoming exhibition marks the artist’s fourth individual presentation with the gallery, her previous ones being ‘Painting Palettes/Palette Paintings II’ in 2018; ‘Salt Water’ in 2016; ‘Wet Paintings’ in 2010. 

The painter, Elaine Navas, who has concentrated on life more than anything since the pandemic started, offers a much-needed introspection on the things that matter: to paint what one wants to see—in thinking that every chance might come as the last. This serves as a countermeasure to the bleakness of our current state, where we have been exposed to the vulnerabilities of humanity—as well as to its resilience to continue and survive. Like trees, old and worn, sturdy as they are stubborn, outlasting generations that have come and gone and have resigned to oblivion. These trees, for Navas, while withered and have lapsed, serve as a reminder of our fortitude and self-determination.
