One of the most notable elements in Romeo Tabuena’s creations is his use of color. Meld with his ability to induce feeling with his ambient atmospheric renditions, Tabuena’s visual lyricism is truly captivating.
In this very work from 1961, we are treated to a strong contrast of tones — an elegant interplay of themes with a subtle yet potent emotional undercurrent.
