A THOMASIAN painter showcased the evolution of his signature style in his solo exhibition “Traverse” at Galerie Joaquin Rockwell in Makati. 

Painting alumnus Marco Coching brought viewers into an augmented realm of reality through his exhibit, which features sunset and horizon paintings composed using his signature metallic waves. 

“I composed it so that the horizon appears to be where the sky meets the sea and the waves represent the clouds,” Coching told the Varsitarian during the artist’s reception on March 23.

According to Coching, the artworks in the exhibit reflected his advance in style and incorporation of new hues to signify evolution. 

“This has been my style for quite some time now, it just evolved. My wave formations are more refined now…I am able to make them look like real clouds,” he said. 

“I also tried using different colors like black to depict the night sky,” he added.

Coching graduated from the College of Fine Arts and Design in 2002. 

He is the grandson of the late National Artist Francisco Coching, dubbed the “King of Komiks” and “Dean of Filipino Illustrators” because of his role in popularizing comics in the Philippines through his iconic works like “Pedro Penduko.”

His exhibit “Traverse” ran from March 16 to 25. Diana May B. Cabalo
