Razzle Dazzle | Solo feature: Zeus Bascon: Until The Next Full MoonOctober 10-21ARTERY, 102 P.Tuazon Blvd, 4001 Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines
Zeus Bascon's Solo Feature "Until the Next Full Moon" currently on view at the Artery Portal until October 21, 2015.
Bascon's multi-media exhibit is a play on shadows and illumination, using the conceptual basis of masks as a genuine reflection of hidden realities altered to bend convention and design, to find extraordinary relations between material and ritual, from the light of reason to the dark expanse of the imagination. 
Bascon treats his works as reflections of the continuous exploration of the wholeness of the self and its relationship to the myths affecting the conditions of existence. Through a range of media, he forms narratives - abstracted from different personal life histories that somehow define a current state of being. 
Zeus Bascon has been actively participating in Manila's exhibition circuit since 2006. Recently, he was part of "The Lizard Says You’re a Liar" curated by Mayumi Hirano, one of the projects that comprises the Forces At Work exhibition, supported by The Japan Foundation Manila and UP Jorge B. Vargas Museum. He was also part of Fictive Communities - Koganecho Bazaar 2014 artist residency program in Japan. He lives and works in City of Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
