Artmaking has flipped new pages for artists in the midst of a pandemic, glossing over the possible effects of isolation and depression that come with the times.

Call it sublimation, the human agency’s potential to rechannel pent-up energies into more meaningful and creative pursuits. An artist’s brush distills images on canvas, and, in the process, giving form and substance to valued objects.

“Efflorescence” is a twinbill featuring the works of Meg Yandoc and Helga Payawal-Vergara, proud UPLB alumni and members of Sigma Delta Phi. Their works, done in their unique acrylic and watercolor style, speak not only of their individual aesthetics but also of their advocacy for the preservation of our endemic flora.

Notwithstanding the volatility and uncertainty of the times, there is art that keeps us grounded and affirms our humanity. There are artists with passion for their craft, making us treasure our sense of community. (jryapo)
