Michael Cacnio’s portrayal of the fisherman features a three - dimensional heft and palpable intimacy. In this particular piece, he introduces an alert dynamism to the figure’s pose, whose outstretched leg balances on the boulder while the other bent leg is planted on the other side. The fisherman sculpture featured a richness of color attributed to the brass medium used. It conveys the eye with the soaring power of a monument as well as gives it a high note while it draws attention to the elegant and graceful form of the sculpted piece. Cacnio wonderfully unsheathes the humanity of the fisherman with his form making this art piece an amazing sight to behold.

Although Michael Cacnio started professionally as a painter, he eventually found his artistic métier in the art of sculpting brass, initially exploring the native games of his childhood. A graduate of the University of the Philippines - College of Fine Arts, Cacnio was a recipient of the Ten Outstanding Young Men in 2006 and is internationally acclaimed as a world-class brass sculptor of the social realist genre, conducting solo exhibits in Asia, Europe, and the United States. In 2007, he became the first Filipino artist to have his works featured in the first solo exhibit in the European Commission headquarters in Barleymont, Brussels.
Cacnio’s extensive body of work encapsulates Filipino traditions, customs, and contemporary realities. His oeuvre features an all-encompassing array of traditional Filipino figures such as this magtataho that comes complete with removable lids for the aluminum buckets – a reflection of his penchant for toy-like details in collectible action figures. His choice of brass serves as his homage to its long history as a medium in our traditional arts, one that can be considered as a heritage material. Brass emphasizes the meticulously carved details of his sculptures, leaving a refined and exquisite impression. The blank faces of his figures are no coincidence as their plainness forms a rapport with the audience, proving that there is familiarity in anonymity.

WRITE UP:

It is said that sculpture is more palpable than painting, its images less elusive due to the physical space it occupies; a feat that flat canvases cannot fully achieve. Yet Cacnio’s sculptural practice lures us beyond the simple facts of height and width. The brass in his sculpture celebrates the richness of color like precious material. Brass gave his sculptures a bright high note as it draws attention to the exquisitely shaped form, not so much decorative but elegant and graceful form. The detail in this particular piece speaks volumes regarding Cacnio’s technical and conceptual skill. The woman’s face is poignantly rendered, giving her facial expressions a palpable sense of depth and humanity. While the unique motifs and patterns on her dress can be seen as a testament to Cacnio’s creativity given that it showcases both simplicity in form but complexity in skill.

 

There are times when sculpture seems to be so distant from its audience. In the case of Michael Cacnio, the opposite is true. His works are deeply personal and yet are a three dimensional celebration of the everyday to which the audience can easily connect to, which is why his works are sought for by collectors.

Lot 54: Michael Cacnio - (b.1969) - Light of Knowledge

Auction Date: Sep 14, 2019

Estimate: ₱80,000 - ₱104,000

Description: Michael Cacnio
(b.1969)
Light of Knowledge
signed and dated 2013
mixed media
The widely disparate objects which constitute Michael Cacnio’s work have nothing in
common except that they are parts of the whole art ensemble, their randomness is an
essential part of this work. From a metal human figure reading a book to plumbing
fixtures, found objects such as these derive their identity as art from the designation
placed upon them by the artist and from the social context that comes with the object.
Cacnio is a sculptor of Social Realist genre.
This may be indicated by either its anonymous wear and tear (as in the plumbing
components) or by its recognizability as a consumer item (as in the toy human).
The context into which it is placed is also a highly relevant factor. His body of work
features tableaux of characters taken from traditional Filipino archetypes delivered in his
distinct signature style, revealing enduring truths about human nature and the community. The idea of dignifying commonplace objects in this
way was originally a shocking challenge to the accepted distinction between what was considered “art” as opposed to “not art”.

Michael Cacnio (b.1969) Fisherman

Lot 15: Michael Cacnio (b.1969) Fisherman

Auction Date: Dec 01, 2018

Estimate: ₱140,000 - ₱182,000

Description: Michael Cacnio (b.1969) Fisherman signed and dated 2018
mixed media
H: 42”x L: 12” x W: 16” (107 cm x 30 cm x 41 cm) For years, Michael Cacnio has been interpreting conventional Filipino genre
scenes into sculptural creations, inflecting them with three-dimensional heft
and palpable intimacy. In this depiction of a fisherman, for instance, Cacnio
introduces an alert dynamism to the pose of the figure, whose outstretched
leg balances on a makeshift ladder while the other, bent, is firmly planted on a
boulder.
With his rod upraised but tilted at an angle (with the line, curving in air,
provides a thoughtful counterpoint), the fisherman grasps a just-caught fish
that will join the rest in a basket already teeming with an abundant harvest.
The humanity in the fisherman is credibly communicated by the form, which
makes this work by Cacnio such a sight and joy to behold.

Mother and Child
Literal bigness would erase the subtleties of the hand that gives Michael Cacnio’s art its accent in monumentality. Sculpture is more palpable than painting, its images less elusive. Yet Cacnio lures us beyond the simple facts of height and width. When it is shaped by a master of scale, this dancing mother and daughter tandem can address the eye with the soaring power of a monument. The brass in his sculpture celebrates the richness of color like precious material. Brass gave his sculptures a bright high note as it draws attention to the exquisitely shaped form, not so much decorative but elegant and graceful form.
There are times when sculpture seems to be so distant from its audience. In the case of Michael Cacnio, the opposite is true. His works are deeply personal and yet are a three dimensional celebrations of the everyday to which the audience can easily connect to, which is why his works are sought for by collectors.
