I will be part of exhibition amongst 52 emerging artists for Onward Compe 2014 at Project Basho Gallery in Philadelphia from March 1 to April 27, 2014. The reception will be on March 1 from 6pm to 9pm and is open to the public so if you’re in the area, it would be great if you could pass by!
I will also be there so say hello!
: Hi! I've been a big admirer of your work ever since college! I used to study also in Ateneo and now I'm based here in NYC. Will you have any exhibits any time soon?
Wow, thank you so much! Glad to know there are more of us out here in New York City. Makes being away from home a little easier to digest. I actually have a group show this coming March in Philadelphia (which I should post about soon) and while it might not be in New York, at least it’s going to show for a few months. If you ever visit Philly you definitely should check it out!
an old work from last year!

My lovely painter friend Valerie visited me at my apartment and brought some salted honey pie from Four and Twenty Blackbirds. She also encouraged me to post more stuff online, so!
I’ve been very quiet these days but it doesn’t mean that I’ve lost all my ambition to create new things. I’m just taking a personal break to just, I don’t know, exist. There’s so much constant pressure to work and succeed without pausing and I just don’t know if that’s what I want for myself right now.
I’ve been experiencing a lot of anxiety lately and I really don’t know how to get out of it. It has a lot to do with how I’m not grounded where I am right now. I don’t feel like I’m ever really where I am, and it feels like I’m holding my breath for something or someplace else. I really want to get out of it.
Dear friends, family, and fellow artists,
The Philippines is currently affected by one of the largest typhoons ever recorded and thousands of lives have been lost. In keeping with the artwork donations that are circulating, I would like to contribute one of my pieces from a previous exhibition.
If you can donate at least $50 to Kids International Ministries* or an organization of your choice**, you can send the donation receipt to reginebdavid(at)gmail(dot)com and I will mail you an 8.5 x 11 archival inkjet print of “Les Arbres” with a letter of authentication. This photograph is exclusively printed for the disaster relief and runs at an edition of 12. It can be shipped internationally.
Many Filipino artists such as Sandra Dans, Hannah Reyes, and Isobel Angeli Sy Francisco are doing similar artwork donations. If you are a fellow artist who is interested in donating your artworks for the those affected by Typhoon Yolanda, the Filipino community would be very grateful.
*Kids International Ministries will be sending out a response team to Tacloban in the next 24 to 48 hours and will be using 100% of your donations for the disaster relief fund. Here is a link for more information on their relief effort and on the organization itself on their Facebook page.
