To the Place Where I Grew Up: Peter Cordova at Creativity Explored

SEE EVENT DETAILS
January 14 - March 12, 2022; Thursdays 4-7pm, Fridays by appt only 3-6pm, Saturdays 10am-2pm

Creativity Explored presents a solo exhibition featuring drawings, paintings, and ceramics by San Francisco-based Filipino artist Peter Cordova, on view January 14 through March 12, 2022.

To the Place Where I Grew Up is Peter Cordova's first solo exhibition, curated in collaboration with his long-time teaching artists Paul Moshammer and Gilles Combet, and named by the artist himself.

The exhibition is both a tribute to Peter Cordova's native Philippines and an acknowledgment of his long-term interest in American Indigenous cultures and people. The mini-retrospective at CE's 16th Street gallery draws upon his 25-year-long career and features over 60 drawings and paintings on paper, matte and chipboard, as well as Cordova's larger-than-life ceramics.

To the Place Where I Grew Up showcases Cordova's ongoing series of landscapes representing both tropical climates and the desert mountains of the American Southwest. Plantlife, people, animals, and birds are other predominant features in his lush, graphic drawings. His detailed frieze-like drawings of native peoples contain immense amounts of detail about an imagined daily life. The drawings blur the line between a mythical retelling of ancient life and reconstructions of pre-Colonial records. Cordova incorporates a wide variety of American tribal and Filipino characteristics and motifs, creating a mythos all his own spanning centuries and diasporas.

Cordova's work has appeared in dozens of exhibitions at Creativity Explored, as well as locally at UNTITLED ART FAIR, the California Conference for the Advancement of Ceramic Art, SFO Museum, Jack Fischer Gallery, Bedford Gallery (Walnut Creek), and internationally at Museum of La Creation France (Begles, France) and Funabashi Cure Gallery (Japan).

"I want to speak for myself through my art. I try to share my heritage with other people. If people are not willing to see what you express - how do they know, if you are not telling them?" - Peter Cordova

Free; Appts require $10 deposit.
