In her latest one-woman exhibit at West Gallery, Sarah Geneblazo presents works that depict and define her personal space. Inspired by the utopian novel, Herland, by the feminist writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, the exhibit adapts the title of the novel and explores what the artist is all about, featuring an expedition of uncharted lands that were darkened by a traumatic past and surrounded by feelings of dejection. The works on exhibit, however, aim to focus on the positive, portraying the artist’s journey from unspeakable misery toward a blissful paradise.
Sarah Geneblazo graduated from the UP College of Fine Arts, and is a member of the Neo Angono Artists Collective. She is known for narrating her personal experience as a sexual abuse victim through her artworks, seeing her craft as a therapeutic process toward healing.
