We realize that CANVAS owns 1/of Gallery, so this post may seem a bit self-serving. But trust us, this is one show that's unique and breathtaking and mysterious and, simply is a visual spectacle. It's still ongoing... you don't have to buy anything... just don't miss it!

Brian Uhing’s “Strange as Angels” is on view at 1/of Gallery in Serendra. ‘Bruihn’ (his other monicker) is based both in Antipolo and Sagada as he also maintains a studio in the latter. The Fil-Am artist of German descent features a magically hypnotic collection of sculptural marionettes that embody a mix of cross-cultural beliefs and imagery.

Adding to the riveting and peculiar majesty of such ‘angels’ as Barzo, the angel of creative inspiration, Marespand, the angel for spells and incantations, and Arda Fravash, the guardian spirit and angel for human souls, each marionette comes with its own 6-foot pedestal of wrought iron and logs that used to serve as train tracks.

The gallery is located at 2/L Shops at Serendra, Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Call 901-3152 or email for details.

NOTE: Originally slated May 1 to 18, "Strange as Angels" has been extended until May 24, 2009.
