The Magic of Carved Glass

The following year, Orlina was finalist in the Toyamura International Sculpture Biennale '95.
However, Tagumpay (Laurels) of Ramon Orlina starts with the basics of the material. It takes up the transparency of glass and the refraction and reflection of light. The work gives reflections of light, some of which are weak, others strong. This observation sharply underscores Orlina's masterly control of his material, a specific technical aspect of which involves the balancing of strong and weak reflections within a unified structure. Such approach is seen in the highly-commended work which is indeed based on various contrasts: between convex and concave, rectilinear and curvilinear passages, and between smoothly polished surfaces where light bounces off brightly and passages of finely striated textures that mute the action of light. Orlina achieves these gritty textures by means of an acid bath that results in a fine corrosion of the glass, a technique that involves the treatment and enhancement of the surface. Another technique which Orlina used in his Pintado Series is the etching of designs on the surface of the glass body by means of a sand-blasting process. Most of the works of the series consisted of female torsos ornamented with tattoo designs on the smooth glass body such as those found among a number of ethnic groups in the country. In his latest show, the sculptor resumes this preoccupation with indigenous design in new works that extend and further elaborate on the Pintado series. When Bryan K.Ohno visited the Singapore Art Museum in 1996 and saw Orlina's glass sculpture window, he decided to invite him to exhibit at the grand opening of his gallery in Seattle. The unqualified success of this show gave rise to the consensus that in the field of international glass art, Ramon Orlina represents the East as Dale Chihuly does the West. That this was a historic event was pointed out in a review by American critic Matthew Kangas for GLASS: The Urban Glass Art Quarterly (Summer 1997): "Ramon Orlina definitely brought something new to the West Coast with this exhibition. With most U.S. glass artists preferring blowing or casting, Orlina's approach offers valid alternatives if not original forms. Indeed, the pieces in the exhibit are dazzling in concept and technical execution. Orlina has taken up this symbol and interpreted it in glass. In this series, Orlina generally strives for thinner forms to achieve greater lightness and transparency. In 1999, the artist marked another high point in his career with his winning the Mr. F Prize of the Toyamura International Sculpture Biennale '99 in Japan. This biennale was for sculpture in general, with 956 entries from 65 participating countries competing in all mediums with size requirement around 20x30x40cm. The final judging was held in the resort village of Toyamura, an hour away from Sapporo, in Hokkaido. It came as no surprise why the place was chosen as the site of the sculpture biennale: it has a lovely park with fifty-eight large sculptures by different artists surrounding a volcanic lake. The F Prize, the award given to Orlina, is named after the late Mr. Masatoshi Fujimoto, former mayor of Toyamura and founder of the biennale in 1993. Ramon Orlina's most recent show, Reflections at the Galerasia in Hongkong, auspiciously straddling the millennium from December 16, 1999 to January 15, 2000, revealed his art in both its changing and constant features. Works such as Falcon, Lotus V and Intertwine show the latest developments in his use of lateral cuts into the glass, internal textures, and a more complex relationship of volumes. The sculpture intriguingly entitled Sygyzy (1999) shows a more fluid approach to the material where angularity and sharpness have dissolved into soft curvilinear contours The interplay of convex and concave elements within the form is enhanced by the elliptical window at the heart of the work which brings in a blazing effusion of white light. About three years ago, the artist also began work on a new series, Homage to Picasso, which will be exhibited for the first time in this new show at the Glorietta Art Space. While the figure of woman has been a constant presence in Orlina's art, this particular series differs from the earlier Ningning and Naesa. For while these two series celebrating the female form are characterized by mellifluous lines, the works of the Picasso series, clearly inspired by the master of the School of Paris, are marked by abrupt breaks and transgressions in form in line with Picasso's concept of simultaneity. In opposition to traditional single-point perspective, the subject is to be shown from all angles and points of view at one and the same time, hence the high modernist concept of multiple perspective. With this came the concern with the interaction between inner and outer space, including penetrating x-ray vision, as in the well-known modernist exemplar Girl before a Mirror. Without doubt, such artistic concepts have been supremely appealing to Orlina as glass sculptor for the medium of glass eminently realizes these concepts in three-dimensional form. The innovation that Orlina brings to his glass sculpture is the use of stainless steel rods. His winning entry measuring 2 meters high, 1.5 meters wide, and 1.5 meters deep was unique among the entries for sculpture in its medium of glass combined with metal. As they sought virtual volume in transparent forms and structural compositions made from fine nylon string, Orlina creates virtual space within the volume of his glass forms. In his glass art, Ramon Orlina revels in his chosen role of artist as eternal player of games, purvey or of magic and illusion, and creator of visions of utopian beauty. Copyright © Ramon G.
