Provenance: Private Collection, Manila
Lyle Buencamino is the son of film music composer and arranger, Dionisio “Nonong” Buencamino Jr., and Celine Flores Buencamino. He graduated from the University of the Philippines’ College of Fine Arts, majoring in Painting in 2005.
His works such as ‘You are Your Own Worst Critic’ — which features the head of his composer father-easily resound with personal memories. Buencamino’s black and white blown up talking heads pull in viewers to virtually eavesdrop on a layered visual rendering of charged tete-a-tetes between the artist’s composer father, and himself.
