Nelfa Querubin's "A Passion for Clay" at the Galleria Duemila

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Galleria Duemila proudly presents A Passion for Clay a solo show by Nelfa Querubin, one of the foremost artists in Philippine contemporary ceramics. The exhibition takes its name from the artist’s recently published book authored by Patrick D. Flores and Imelda Cajipe Endaya. 

A Passion for Clay brings together Querubin’s most sought-after ceramic pieces spanning from the late 1980s to 2013. Centering on medium and technique, her practice is explicitly freehand and is much more organic than it may appear. The vitality of her works, which stylistically integrate impressions of astronomy, geology, and panoramic scenery, guarantees Querubin an exceptional place in the pantheon of Philippine contemporary ceramics. Ladened with the complexities of the natural world, her work bellies rich imagery of topography and organic matter. Even more intriguing are the distinct contrasts in her work, saturated and subsisting: sharp and pure, art and design, utility and frivolity, attractiveness and otherness.

In the early years of her artistic career, Nelfa Querubin delved into cartography, graphic design, and printmaking. She developed an affinity with ceramic pottery in the early 1970s and has since been devoted to the medium. Over the years she has authored three books. Querubin has had three retrospective exhibitions; Ayala Museum (2013), UPV Art Gallery (2008), and Vargas Museum (2005-2006). She is a recipient of the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Thirteen Artists Arward in 1980, her prints has been exhibited in print Biennials and Triennials in Korea, Japan, and India. 

A Passion for Clay runs from June 6-30, 2015 at Galleria Duemila located at 210 Loring Street, 1300 Pasay City.
