Grand Birds of the Philippines at Electric Works

David Tomb and Jeepney Projects Worldwide
at Electric Works Gallery
San Francisco, CA

October 12 – November 10, 2012
Opening Reception: Friday, October 12, 6 – 8 p.m.

Electric Works is pleased to present Grand Birds of the Philippines mixed media works on paper by David Tomb in conjunction with Jeepney Projects Worldwide, October 12-November 10 with a reception Friday, October 12, 6-8 PM at 1360 Mission Street in San Francisco.

The exhibition will feature the iconic and critically endangered Great Philippine Eagle and other endemic birds of the Philippines, including the Rufous Hornbill. Tomb’s latest artworks are luminous and colorful paper assemblages with subtle low relief elements that help convey spatial depth as well as the ambiguous and mysterious jungle terrain of Mindanao. In the gallery there will be living plants that will add to the ambience of the Mindanao jungle—one of the richest and most diverse habitats in the Philippines. There will be a 12-foot high 15-foot wide wall piece of a life size Philippine Eagle nest site. With this project Tomb brings attention to the challenges and tensions these grand birds face in order to survive and share a sustainable future with an ever-growing Filipino population.
