Known for his lyrical, abstract compositions that derive from nature’s forms, H.R. Ocampo has captivated numerous audiences with his works that are nothing short of breathtaking. Arguably one of the most original artists, Ocampo’s works flaunt a very Filipino sensibility — such could very well be a byproduct of his self-taught background and homegrown influence.
Ocampo’s oeuvre definitely holds some of the finest abstract works — a complexity in their grandeur, a familiarity in their complexity. This work from 1976 is a fine example of Ocampo’s genius aesthetic.
