De La Salle Santiago Zobel’s Spark Museum presents “Metamorphosis”, an art exhibit featuring the works of Camille Dela Rosa from 1991 to present, that will benefit the Visual Art Program of DLSZ and the St. John Maria Vianney Foundation; her artworks are displayed at the Center for Performing Arts Lobby from June 19 to June 29, 2012.
This exhibit is part of Spark Museum’s aim to showcase the art compositions by prominent Philippine visual artists during their younger years.
“Camille Dela Rosa is the daughter of the late noted painter Ibara Y. Dela Rosa and humanities and art history professor Ethel Dimacuha, also a visual artist. To her credit are sixteen solo art exhibitions and a number of group shows in Asia and Europe. In her early career, Camille produced spontaneously and exhibited her gardens, churches, landscapes, flowers, portraits, nudes, people in various endeavors, and her abstract; she then explored the surreal, the morbid, the mechanical, and the unknown. Her collectors continued patronizing whatever she produced and was also tagged as the “Youngest impressionist painter in the Philippines”. She has been recognized and awarded by the Art Association of the Philippines, Pagalingang Pinay Art Competition, and Philip Morris Philippine Art Awards.”
Spark Museum is envisioned to be a museum that gathers a collection of artworks of celebrated artists from their youth.
