New Paintings by Marcel Antonio @ Water Dragon Gallery

The Romantic Lie: Desire, Ennui, Anxiety 
February 6 – 25, 2012 

New paintings by Marcel Antonio
Featuring new poems by VIS de Veyra

In July 2010, poet Vicente Ignacio Soria de Veyra posted anonline essay on the art of Marcel Antonio and coined the phrase “Blue Funk Erotica” for Antonio’s art. The blog entry started a dialogue between Antonio’s art and intent and de Veyra’s reading, culminating in a late 2011 collection titled “Desire, Ennui, Anxiety.”

VIS de Veyra joins Antonio in this exhibit with 14 new poems in the exhibit catalogue.

The Romantic Lie is on view at the Water Dragon Gallery until February 25.
