Arndt Art Agency (A3) is pleased to present Marina Cruz’s first solo exhibition which represents the artist’s European debut.
Mend and Amends presents Filipino artist Marina Cruz’s new body of work in the form of six medium to large-scale oil on canvas paintings. The Philippines is renowned for its strong painting tradition established by classically trained artists such as Juan Novicio Luna in the 19th century, and later, Fernando Cueto Amorsolo in the 20th century. Belonging to new generation of contemporary Filipino artists, Cruz continues this trajectory purporting a striking realist technique through the articulation of precise brushstrokes and detailing. Having completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, Cruz has sustained her investigation into the formal qualities of painting since being awarded the prestigious Filipino art prize the Ateneo Art Award in 2008.
