Painting the political crisis

Blue, red, and yellow, the colors of the Philippine flag, fill his canvasses. He alludes a woman's menstrual period to the country's cyclic political turmoil, and he sprinkles it with satirical images to boot.

Former San Carlos seminarian Danny Sillada has sure found the perfect timing to unveil his political artworks from 1998 to present. Beginning July 4, The Collection will be on view at The Podium in Mandaluyong City.

Included in the suite of selected paintings is the controversial "Menstrual Period in Political History," a 4 x 6 feet artwork on an expensive metamorphic rock.

An abstract surrealist, Sillada is known for his sensational paintings on anatomical figures, biomorphic forms and the cross. The poet-painter, now a San Carlos Seminary formator and faculty member, will also launch a chapbook of poems and hold a poetry reading at the opening of his show.

Sillada is a recipient of Pasidungog Centennial Award in the fields of Literary and Visual Arts in his hometown in Davao. He is the author and thread starter of a well-visited forum on the web, dubbed The Nostalgic Idea of God at Philosophy News Service.

He had also written a controversial philosophical treatise on metaphysics The Absence of Fundamental Choice, and other writings such as The Philosophy of Waiting and The Existential World.

Sillada left his priestly vocation 14 years ago to embrace a calling for the arts. He obtained his degree on Philosophy at the Queen of Apostles College Seminary, Davao; his theological and postgraduate studies at the University of Santo Tomas, Manila; and his MBA at the Ateneo Graduate School of Business, Makati.

Too many cooks don’t spoil the broth
There is no question anymore about movie-goers paying to see something they can get for free on television. They do it all the time. Versions of Superman, X-Men, Transformers, etc., etc. all come out regularly on TV. But then, the movies usually feature live actors and truly spectacular scenes that you can never fully enjoy on the small screen. So you watch the shows on TV and then occasionally treat yourself to an event movie.
