Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

Artists are known for creating vast murals and intricately-painted masterpieces, massive statues and iconic imagery. They go down in history for their most memorable visions--known to many as grand works with exhorbitant price tags kept in high-security safes. Yet great works of art are not formed in one fell swoop. There are rough sketches, color studies, figure drawings, and photos. Some artists doodle, collage, and scribble away the everyday just to get closer and closer to the ultimate vision. With every line and stroke, they refine their character and enrich their visual vocabularies.
Like a welcome breath of fresh county air, the art of Dimalanta sweeps us back to that lost Eden, that vanished countryside of open sunny fields and lakes, the heat wafted away by continuous breeze, the becalming green grass and verdant vegetation, with the sight of that heavy lumbering carabao chewing cud all day long. Aaah, bliss!
“This is not us.” Perplexed with the seemingly new norms in our midst, artist and University of the Philippines Fine Arts professor Marco Ruben T. Malto II presents his solo exhibit, “Kahimanawari,” and offers a timely contribution to vital discourses on Filipino virtues.
The new paintings shown in six hundred and fifteen thousand four hundred and eighty eight are a
continuation of the project one million dollars which was exhibited at Artspace following her residency there in 2006.
