Jose Solon Perfecto
Major Solo Exhibit
Aphro at The Alley, Karrivin Plaza, Makati City
May 4, 2023
8 May 2023 (MANILA, PHILIPPINES) — Jose Solon Perfecto’s first major solo exhibit, Études in Survival, opened on 4 May 2023 at Aphro at The Alley, Karrivin Plaza, Makati City. The pottery show features 74 ceramic vessels that bear Solon Perfecto’s studies in functional and conceptual art.
The former director of Sugbu Chinese Heritage Museum, Augusto Castro, curated the artworks in the cascading space of Aphro to emulate the operatic theme in Solon Perfecto’s expression of pandemic isolation and artistic hermitage. Solon Perfecto’s wife and managing partner, Aussy Aportadera, served as creative director of the show.
The successful event was attended by family, friends, collectors, and fellow artists amidst down tempo beats from afternoon until night. The public is welcome to visit Aphro from Tuesday to Saturday (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.) until May 31, 2023 to view the pottery art of Solon Perfecto. All works are for sale and can be viewed through the visual catalogue.
The artist wishes to acknowledge his patrons Tina Antonio, Dr. Luchi Aportadera, Sheree Chua, and Mercedes Solon for their support.
