One of the most enduring forms that Ramon Orlina has kept returning to in his oeuvre that now spans decades, is the female nude. Glass is a medium that yields to the master’s hands, transformed in the most sinuous of creations. In this work, the curvature of the female bosom is noticeably figurative while, the face, on the hand, is abstracted. The tension between representation and abstraction imbues the work with sculptural resonance. Its multifaceted surface permits light to enter through the sculpture, breaking and reflecting it back through a million magical combinations. While Orlina has worked with glass tinted in blue or pink, the seagreen color, which recalls the depths of the sea, remains to be his most definitive.
