UST Museum mounts Hatch Exhibit with Manila Bulletin

In partnership with Manila Bulletin, the UST Museum mounted an exhibition entitled “Hatch” on September 12, 2019 at the UST Museum – Main Gallery.

Featuring 100 acrylic eggs, Hatch showcased contemporary Filipino artists’ plethora of artworks from different disciplines in one medium.

According to the UST Museum Director Rev. Fr. Isidro C. Abaño, O.P., SThL-MA, the concept of egg had been adapted in Christian art.

“The egg symbolized the resurrection of Christ,” Fr. Abaño said. “To mention some examples, some paintings of Mary Magdalene represent her holding an egg while being the first witness of the resurrection of Jesus.”

Manila Bulletin Executive Vice-President Sonny Coloma said showing the Filipinos an unconventional means of producing art hatched the concept for the artists to discharge their expressiveness on acrylic eggs.

“Karamihan sa rendering sa surface ay pagdibuho, o pag-drawing. Ngayon makikita natin na marami nang anyo ng creative expression na nagpapatunay lamang na napaka malikhain ng mga Filipino, at ito ay dapat nating pagyamanin at gamitin nating daan para mapaunlad ang ating bansa at pamayanan,” Coloma said.

The Thomasian artists included in this exhibit are, Nemiranda, Raul Isidro, Fil Dela Cruz, Salvador Ching, Jovito Andres, CJ Tañedo, Thomas Daquioag, Janos Dela Cruz, Gerrico Blanco, Franklin Caña Valencia, Francis Nacion, Buds Convocar, Remy Boquiren, Anna de Leon, Carlo Ongchangco, Wildredo Offemaria, Maria Magdamit, Shiela Luis Tango, Mary Rose Gisbert, Jojo Austria, Benjie Torrado Cabrera, Linds Lee, Jason Moss, Margie Organo, and Edgar Doctor.
