To ‘Infinity+’ and beyond

On February 1, Solaire Resort and Casino and Galerie Roberto opened “Infinity +,” the solo art exhibition of “Visual Olympian” Joe Datuin. It showcases his latest geometric abstraction works featuring the infinity symbol, an imagery that signifies unending prosperity, positivity and abundance. The exhibit is timely, especially since it coincides with the Chinese Lunar New Year, when it is traditional to gather the family and hope for good fortune in the coming year. The exhibit was launched at The Gallery of Solaire Resort and Casino on February 8.
“Infinity +” is the result of combining all the artist's influences and original creative invention. It is also his artistic response to a major influence — American pop visual artist Andy Warhol — who created a “Dollar Signs Series” of silkscreen works. In the “Dollar Signs,” Warhol is quoted saying that “big-time art is big-time money” and, with his brutal truthfulness, bluntly printed the sign for money as the sign for art." In this tradition, Joe uses the infinity sign, believing that art nowadays, is defined by many possibilities.
While his past exhibition pays homage to masters whom he looks up to, “Infinity +” showcases the amalgamation of his influences. In here, he distills the admirable qualities from the works of masters, like the simplicity of Mondrian's lines, the childish playfulness of Miro's compositions, and the vivacious burst of colors of Matisse's collages — to create his own style. The series presents his signature “Fusion” technique which combines two dimensional art with stainless steel forms.
The exhibition is also two-part, and is composed of works from past shows, as well as new creations. The variety offers a polarity of the old and the new, and a visual hindsight of the artist's stylistic progression through the years.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to fellow Filipinos who were victims of the military unrest in Marawi City in Mindanao.
