Charting thirty years and moving between the aesthetic landscapes of  
Japan, Korea, America, China and Batangas, this huge Retrospective  
exhibition of Roberto M.A. Robles salutes his contribution to  
Philippine culture. Titled Saluysoy, which literally means ?an eternal  
spring? in the Southern Tagalog dialect, it captures the spirit of  
Robles? abstract sculptures and mixed media paintings and offers a  
point from which we too can grow in our appreciation of his unique  
language of abstraction. Including 80 artworks, Robles is a master of  
many mediums with unbelievable focus and spiritual energy. Curated by  
international art writer Gina Fairley and presented by Ateneo Art  
Gallery in collaboration with Galleria Duemila.  Opening on 17  
February the exhibition continues through until 23 April 2011.
