House of Falling Leaves

Songs of Innocence and Experience is a collection of poems written and illustrated by the poet and illustrator William Blake that explored two opposing states. Opposing may not be the right word because experience is inevitable.

House of Falling Leaves, the duo exhbition of Carlo Ongchangco and Irish Galon, celebrates innocence and self-discovery with lively and colorful imagery. While Ongchangco’s and Galon’s respective styles differ, common elements thread their works together—lots of whimsy and playfulness pervade most of their paintings. Though where one celebrates innocence, the other contemplates experience.

With Ongchangco, childhood is a protected space. Colors blend in harmony; fantasy seeps through reality, joyous and magical. Landscapes breathe and are full of promise.

For Galon, a darker magic pervades her spaces, absent of landscapes. Instead, her faceless women are confined in rooms where blooming wallpapers mask the inner turmoil.

Here it is then, the romance of innocence, the suspicion of experience in one fearful symmetry.
