Jojo Soria de Veyra. Pilate's Trip. 1990. oil on marine plywood
In 1990 I went back to my attempt in Muro-Amithe previous year, re-studying semi-abstract composition (abstraction that leaves a tinge of visual realism). Such studies, like the above, seems to me now to have been a result of a desire to please both those looking mainly for the decorative in the abstract and those expecting immediate visual signifiers within the decorative.
