Nelson Castillo’s “Metamorphosis”
“Art that transforms before your eyes.”
Filipino painter Nelson Castillo’s “Metamorphosis” is an outstanding example of art shape-shifting. While art dares the observers to discern meaning and discover value; they aim to create imagery that entices a retort and inquisitiveness, and if done well, art provokes thought.
Because of this imprecise and comprehensive nature, art spans an implausible gamut of ideas and themes, restricted only by each individual artist’s ability to convey their meaning. Even more, the meaning is something different in the eye of each beholder and that resourcefulness is the beauty of art.
Who is better to portray that than an artist, Nelson Castillo, who is enamored with visual illusions and tricks – making one thing seem like several from two different angles.
