Landscapes evoke innerscapes in Raul Isidro’s ‘Colorati’
Raul Isidro's abstracted landscapes are deeply personal reflections if not evocations of his hometown of Calbayog, Western Samar. The coastal town's blue seas, natural colors that change from gray to green, and the reflection of the full moon at low tide, are characteristic images of his works. Isidro heightens the colors and configurations even more in his newest exhibit at Galerie Joaquin U.P. Town Center, "Colorati," in order to depict the force of nature.
