Jinggoy Buensuceso explores the multiple dimensions of raging ideas and emotions in his solo show entitled Rebellion.
In Rebellion, the artist takes you on a tumultuous journey from the birth of a powerful idea that consumes an individual, the building pressure and force that makes people come together and move as one organism for a common passion and cause, the powerful release of tension and expression of freedom, to the quiet yet indelible aftermath which serves as a potent force within each and one of us. This potent force, when triggered ignites the vigorous cycle once more.
Rebellion is the aftermath of the artist’s personal turmoil as he separates himself from his present realities to fulfill his artistry away from the trappings of domestication. In this show, Buensuceso ventures into the bold and unorthodox use of materials and methods in the featured bodies of work, challenging the expected presentation of his mediums - industrial tracing paper and woodwork rendered with the severity of fire as well as uncovering new pursuits with cement, charcoal, and graphite - a reaction to the status quo. An uprising.
He graduated from the University of The Philippines in Diliman with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, major in Visual Communication in 2003. He is a strong proponent of linear art - his works evoke stories and brave statements of oneself, culture, and way of life through the use of lines. Buensucesof is also an emerging figure in Philippine furniture design, a three-time Mugna awardee, and co-founder of Epoch, a movement of six young international artists who provoke new thinking in the domain of furniture design.
The artist has gained extensive local and international experience in visual arts. His work showcase bold statements and clean lines. He is influenced by art and architecture in New York and Singapore where he was based the longest.
