DELAYED GRATIFICATION: Artwork

CARLO "CALOY" GERNALE

“My body of works mainly focuses on creating visual narratives that depict my commentaries on the socio-political dynamics and my personal views on long standing issues that concern contemporary Philippine society. I am driven by the past and present events that mold Philippine history; and has penchant for indigenous and contemporary myths, fables, and banter, and tries to incorporate them into my works of art.”

“I am plagued by endless questions. The challenge of making critical decisions as a father and as a painter reigns on me every single day. In consequence, I tend to impart both realities and dreams; their difference and coexistence.”

“For as long as there is life, death is real. The pursuit for gratification in an unpredictable state and time allows people to overcome their fears and follies. In certain ways, I find a constant need to be constructive with the negativities surrounding me. I would rather use the worst things in the world to create some positivity than let it consume me entirely.”

“As a child I was raised to believe in an ideal world but I soon found out the opposite. I translate this to my practice, creating images similar to photo negatives.”
