14th ARC Salon in PoetsArtists Magazine

Published on July 19, 2019

PoetsArtists Magazine has recently published an issue of their magazine featuring "The Tempest" by Randalf Dilla, who won the PoetsArtists Magazine award in the 14th ARC Salon Competition. The article about Dilla was written by Lorena Kloosterboer.

“In Tempest, Dilla depicts dynamics that he considers his artistic inspirations. We see a portrait of his beautiful young wife amongst elegantly framed masterpieces on a wall—in this case Filipino masters displayed in the National Museum in the Philippines. The museum wall and the paintings are swept by a powerful airstream embodying the energy that grips the artist when he contemplates great works of art.”
