Leading Filipino artist Rodel Tapaya presents a new suite of paintings in his debut solo museum exhibition in Germany entitled "Bright-Coloured Buttlerflies" at the Galerie der Stadt Sindelfingen. In this exhibition, Rodel Tapaya draws upon inspiration from myths and tales, depicted with a vibrant palette in a range of complex compositions. His artistic practice is characteristically intertwined with references to age-old stories presented within a contemporary context.
Opening on the 27th of November, 2016 from 12-2pm, the artist will be present along with the following keynote speakers: Dr. Bernd Vöhringer (Lord Mayor of the City of Sindelfingen), Michael Bauer (Head of Production and Location Responsibility Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen), Otto Pannewitz (Director of Galerie der Stadt Sindelfingen), and Dr. Alexander Tolnay (Former Director of the Neuen Berliner Kunstverein). The exhibition will run until the 22nd of January, 2016.
"Butterflies are full of symbolism and supernatural meanings in different cultures. In the Philippines, a black butterfly means a departed loved one visits, while when bright-coloured butterflies enter your home, they signify good luck and good fortune." – Rodel Tapaya, November 2016
