Silverlens is pleased to present Gregory Halili's fourth solo exhibition in the gallery. Entitled Glass Horizon, the exhibition includes eleven new oil on capiz shell paintings. Known for his meticulously crafted paintings in miniature scale, this new collection shines a brighter light on the delicate nature of Halili's work, as he employs a reverse painting method (more commonly seen in cell animation) onto capiz shells that were thinned down to near breaking point. Completed during the recent months of community quarantine, the new works are the artist's meditations on fragility; be that of nature, human existence and even social order.
In Halili's words: "Through this fragile material, the paintings resonate glass-like surfaces, reminiscent of old daguerreotype photographs, which captures an ethereal memory and delicate state of fragility. These paintings offer hope about nature and our existence, a portrait of the possibility of creation and restoration."
