De Joya arts exhibit still on


Ongoing at the Sunshine Place until March 15 is Minette de Joya’s art exhibit, a collection of her paintings representing not a central theme but rather a myriad of nuggets she picked up in her personal journey.
These artworks make up the ‘Inscriptions from the Heart’ exhibit.
According to de Joya, translating her impressions into art work is very challenging.
She says “What I’ve found most challenging and gratifying, at the same time, is translating these impressions and unlocking the creative beauty that lies beneath each stroke ... in every color that’s intuitively chosen ... and in the magic that eventually unfolds as I express that which is in me at a particular moment.”
“So, art is what I am ... heart and soul revelations reflected in the complex interplay of colors, as one blends into another. Then again, they could be expressions in the stark simplicity of just a few strokes,” she added. 
De Joya is thankful to Sunshine Place for providing the platform and the support to cultivate her artistic talent and hone her skills in expressing ideas and emotions in the visual language.
She credits Maestro Fidel Sarmiento (AAP president) who conducts art classes at the Senior Hub for his tireless mentorship in her journey as a reborn artist. “Having hibernated from this hobby for nearly three decades, there was literally a considerable amount of “brushing up” that was done,” she said.
The artist opined, “Art is what I am ... “accidental errors” breaking into defining strokes.  It is only when it feels just about right to set aside the brush that I realize that these imperfections, almost always, create a better version of what was initially laid out.  So true of life.  So true of my passage from one level to the next.”
