FEATURED ARTWORK TIMALA – DEITY OF THE RIVER OF SOULS 48 x 36 inches Oil, charcoal, pastel, chalk, metal leaf and acrylic on canvas 2021 Please click the following link to enter the virtual exhibition: https://artspaces.kunstmatrix.com/en/exhibition/6012315/devi DEVI means “heavenly, divine, anything of excellence.” It is the feminine equivalent of a deity or god in Sanskrit, deva being the masculine form. The term diwata is a derivative of deva. In this collection of paintings, artist Guy Custodio portrays his inspired goddesses either in the Spanish colonial finery of the 1800s or in the precolonial costumes of our ancestors, complete with gold jewelry that used to be part of their everyday attire. Custodio, whose roots are in Spain, is influenced by Spanish religious art. And so, just as the enshrined image of the Macarena in Sevilla, Spain is overdressed with embroidery and lace, Custodio’s deities are as elaborately fitted out. Gallery visits are strictly by appointment only due to the implementation of MECQ in Metro Manila.
