Every story, every emotion and every thought, when translated into a creative output, becomes a piece of the artist’s life that is shared with the world; the beauty of art lies in the individualism of the artist. These were the philosophies that ran through my mind last April 10 at By Chance Exhibit in Makati as the masterfully crafted pieces by Filipina artist Carmela Geisert displayed boldness, wonder, and calm – qualities that are evident in the way she presented herself during the event.
Aside from the overflowing wine and the soothing jazz music, the German Club Manila’s penthouse was filled with Geisert’s closest friends, colleagues, supporters and art enthusiasts who were thrilled to witness the artist’s very first solo art exhibition.
There are many curiosities invoked by each painting and one of these was Geisert’s creation of fluid art; what started as a means to kill time during flights has developed into her means to communicate the inner person. Geisert is a self-taught painter whose passion for creative expression overtook her lack of formal training in painting. Indeed, she is unstoppable.
The exhibition “By Chance” will run from April 10 to May 8, 2018 at German Club Manila located at Eurovilla II Penthouse in Makati. For details, visit carmelageisert.com.
