‘Portraits and Patterns of Unconditional Love’ at ARTablado, May 1-15

Mother's Day: Artist Mylene Quito dedicates "Portraits and Patterns of Unconditional Love" to the woman who taught her the best kind of love - her mother, who worked as a part-time seamstress abroad to provide for her family.

When it comes to creating art, artists often get inspiration from their own experiences. For Kapampangan artist Mylene Quito, it was motherhood that gave birth (pun intended) to her art.  

From May 1 to 15, Quito’s  most recent works will be on display at Robinsons Galleria’s ARTablado through the solo exhibit “Portraits and Patterns of Unconditional Live”. 

“The radiance of a mother’s love for her child is akin to the life-giving force of the sun. Its warmth envelops her child within a sphere of hope, joy, and tranquillity that lasts seemingly for eternity,” the artist, a mother of three, says. 

Family has always been her source of inspiration. She weaves stories of unconditional love with every brushstroke on the canvas. Her figures and abstraction—art styles she is most known for—depict the emotional bond between a mother and a child.  

As people celebrate Mother’s Day this May, she dedicates “Portraits and Patterns of Unconditional Love” to the woman who taught her the best kind of love –  her mother, who worked as a part-time seamstress abroad to provide for her family.  

Quito’s memories growing up led to works like “Divine Bliss and “Seeds You Sow”, which hark back to her past but also look toward the future.  

The artist’s exhibition will also include paintings focusing on Mother Nature, personifying Earth’s life-giving ability that is often compared to a nurturing mother. 

The self-taught artist first joined an exhibition in 2017, the Pista ng Sining in Pangasinan. She has since participated in group exhibitions at Conspiracy Garden Cafe in Quezon City (2017), Fred’s Gallery in Baguio City (2018), Robinsons Place Ilocos (2018), Got Heart Gallery in White Plains (2019), and many more. She also joined shows and art exchange programs in Kuala Lumpur and Penang in Malaysia; Quingdao, China; and Taipei City, Taiwan, among others. 

Robinsons Land ARTablado, a combination of art and entablado (stage), is part of Robinsons Land’s efforts to showcase Philippine art. It shines the spotlight particularly on homegrown talents, like the Hagonoy Art Group from Bulacan in 2021, Quezonian artists in February and Sining Rizal in April. 

ARTablado is on the third floor  of Robinsons Galleria, Ortigas Avenue, Ortigas Center, Quezon City.
