Manipulative Pollinator by Sarah Gaugler

Two artists whose styles are different from each other find common ground in their belief of empowering women through their works.
Abstractionist Camille Ver and portrait artist Sarah Gaugler both know this subject all too well. Their  works, featured in Gallery Big’s “Intersections,” are exhibited at the Rockwell Powerplant’s Corridor 1.
Ver exudes the intense emotions of her works through the harmonious melding of carefully chosen colors. She has said  she uses her feelings as the subject of her works in acrylic, and, clearly, the artworks reverberate with both calmness and passion.
Emotional Content by Camille Ver

A graduate of Fine Arts from the University of the Philippines, Ver takes inspiration from purposeful movement in her thought, words  and action. She practices subtlety in her works, much like how women conceal their emotions. The strength of her abstractions come from its mission of identifying the facets of the human psyche and spirit.
Gaugler has learned to capture the beauty of women through her portraits of them—sans the body.
The women, to the playful mind, may come off as ill-fated sisters spared of their heads full of abstract-quality hair and big, round eyes that tell of unique and individual stories of how they got to their current state. All of whom are  perhaps waiting for the time when they would be rejoined to their bodies, and once more, to the ones they love.
A musician and tattoo artist, Gaugler is from the University of Santo Tomas. Her impressive and expressive art is not mere avenue of her expression but a defining example of how women sometimes need only an aspect of their being to prove their inner beauty and strength.
Gallery Big is at LRI Design Plaza, Nicanor Garcia Street (formerly Reposo), Makati. Call 8954516.
