All The Creative Ways Artists Depicted Space in Art Fair Philippines

These portrayals of rooms celebrate artistic imagination and license

“We comfort ourselves by reliving memories of protection. Something closed must retain our memories, while leaving them their original value as images. Memories of the outside world will never have the same tonality as those of home and, by recalling these memories, we add to our store of dreams; we are never real historians, but always near poets…” - Gaston Bachelard, 

The Poetics of Space

It is always interesting to see how artists depict or interact with space.  Whether it is to portray a memory or to provide an experiential medium for viewers, the representation of space in art has long been a topic of consideration for architects, interior designers, curators and art enthusiasts. An artist’s imagination conjures many ways of representing space.  Their creativity can offer up different perspectives on the elements of design that make up a domestic setting, a landscape or a cityscape.  This year’s Art Fair Philippines offered its fair share of these examples, from photography, to painting and installation art.
