Purusha-Sakti, an oil painting of shapes and lots of color.

 

Raymond Olivero

"Purusha-Sakti"

Painting - Oil

53" x 80"

2000

Central Regional Family Success Center

 

Description

On a golden yellow background/water surface, artist Raymond Olivero placed at the center, a sabre palm trunk (without any frond shown) entangled with some blue hue flowering plants (water hyacinth?), casting their black shadow and partially obscuring two stylized white face masks flanking at two sides. The same masks in smaller version are repeated on the upper and lower borders of the painting. This intriguing artwork is installed at the Center lobby area.
