In collaboration with Heima, Soleil Ignacio and Tokwa Penaflorida‘s two-man show entitled, “Hello Sailor”, is an exhibit of watercolor works on paper. The artworks revolve around representations of water-dwelling creatures—mermaids, sirens, water nymphs with flowing locks amongst lithe bodies, and gazes that are transformed and transfixing—all paradoxical depictions of agelessness and beauty. Revisiting old tales of desire and seduction, dreams of the conquests of men at sea, their inevitable longing for temptresses are delicately captured in these pallid and frail wraiths.

Hello Sailor exhibit launch featuring Thursday Room’s Soleil Ignacio and Tokwa Penaflorida is on Saturday, April 14, 2012, 8PM at Heima Cubao X
