While the art world obsessed over the record breaking auction of a painting by Ronald Ventura last April, the Filipino artist was focused instead on making new work at the Singapore Tyler Print Institute.

The result of his five-week-long art residency here is his latest exhibition, Recyclables, at the print- and paper-making institute in Robertson Quay.

On display are more than 40 works such as lithographs, cast paper sculptures and paper relief on canvas. They feature an eclectic melange of images; including skulls, animal anatomy and macabre cartoon characters.

The visual vocabulary and medium of the works are not unfamiliar to his oeuvre but they are tackled anew through the notion of recycling.
