UP alumnus and artist Allan Cabalfin opened his exhibit etitled “Inner Gees” at Etnos Gallery, Angelicum School, Iloilo City on January 8, 2018.
The recent clay sculptures of Cabalfin are arrested in beguiling but fantastic molds. It features figures with closed eyes in quite contentment but in vexing strangeness that borders on the macabre. The dominant designs courageously defy normality because they appear as post-human graftages from the artist’s earthly delights.
