Portraits by Glenn (1965-2002)

(click image twice to enlarge)
.
I was just browsing through my files and decided to put together some of the portraits, done in different media, that I didn’t realize I had done and taken a photo of these past years. I will write about them as I upload each portrait. In the meantime, here’s a link to a few portraits I have recently uploaded on Fine Art America. From this site, one can avail of portraits I had done over the years in the form or canvas print, acrylic glass print, metal print and even greeting card where you can write your own greeting. This is my “Art Outreach Program”, so, I hardly earn from this, the expense merely shoulders printing, shipping/handling, and framing if you take this option.

DIGI-ANA PASTEL PORTRAITS 2013 

by Visual Artist,
Glenn A. Bautista
http://glenn-studio.artistwebsites.com/galleries.html
.
I created these pastel portraits using both the digital and analog approaches. I depart from the photos submitted by friends, or those I have taken myself by using the computer to compose, enhance, subtract, add and create artistic effects necessary for the type of portraiture I would like to achieve. Having done all these, I continue working on the portrait on velum paper, using charcoal, color pencils, soft pastels, erasers, fixative, etc. Although a very tedious approach to portraiture, I find this process overwhelmingly satisfying. 
I have been fusing photography with my analog portraiture since the ’70s; some of these earlier works are included in this album. If you wish to have this type of portrait done, just send in clear photos via email to :
.
glenn@glennbautista.com
.
The original artwork on velum paper (11 x 17 inches) would cost you $500, including shipping charges. You may pay via PayPal at my email address above or send a check to:
.
8383 El Mundo Dr., Apt. 324, Houston, TX 77054
.
When you send your photos, please indicate your shipping address, mode of payment, and if you would like your portrait featured here at my FAA site. This will allow you or your friends to avail of reproductions of your portrait in various smaller or bigger sizes and formats (standard or framed prints, canvas, acrylic sheet, metal sheet, or greeting card).You may also opt not to purchase the original artwork you request me to do but instead, simply order any of the original’s reproductions. (FAA guarantees faithful print reproduction of the original, museum-quality materials, and unbeatable service and price)

The Rizal Monument pen and ink drawing is composed of the National Hero’s thirty-nine (39) poems and one song,”A Orillas del Pasig“, translation into English by my late friend, Alfredo Veloso. This pre-photoshop pen & ink drawing was…

Having reach a high level of artistic development, the artist visited Germany in the early Eighties and specialized in lithography at the Kunstakademie in Dusseldorf. In the stimulating climate of the school, he enthusiastically plunged famed Bauhaus traditions. Thus, during this sojourn in that country, Glenn Bautista produced a series of art works for which he won critical recognition, his works becoming part of the permanent exhibit at GalerieArt204 at Rethelstrasse, Dusseldorf, in the distinguished company of Joseph Beuys and the Masters Ernst, Chagall, Dali, and Miro. He returned to the Philippines in the mid-eighties to resume his active participation in the art scene by working on…

‘Uncommon Art’ Of Houston-Based Filipino Artist Glenn Bautista Reaches Texas Art Scene

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 29, 2013 /Texas State Business Network/ — Prolific and extraordinary visual artist Glenn Bautista has been selected to join the exclusive ranks of Texas State Business Network as a result of his exceptional performance in the field of visual arts. Glenn has routinely exhibited the commitment, vision, and skills required to be considered among the best.

Since moving to Texas in 2009, Glenn Bautista has created over a hundred soft pastel drawings that capture, in a way that only his unique imagination can, the landscapes and life forms of the state’s suburbs and cities—Garland, Weatherford, Pearland and Houston. Published in three art books, these drawings, including those made in Colorado and California, attest to his relentless pursuit of art wherever he may be.

From his home in Houston, Glenn Bautista runs his own art gallery in the Philippines, Glenn’Studio, home to over 300 pieces of his personal artwork collection from 1963-2008. Established in 1990 as a personal project in architectural design, Glenn’Studio has served as a multidimensional expression of Glenn Bautista’s creative philosophy.

Glenn’s art—notably described by renowned art critic Alice Guillermo as “uncommon”—encompasses religious paintings in oil, sketches, portraits, lithographs and etchings, nude pastels, pencil pastel drawings, collages, soft pastel compositions, nature and technology compositions, golfscapes, zenscapes, abstractions in oil, Christian art, digital art, and heaven and earth oils. He currently sells his recent artworks and also accepts works on commission.

Throughout his career as an artist, Glenn Bautista has exhibited his works in various galleries and museums in the United States, Europe and Asia, including the Cultural Center of the Philippines; National Museum of Singapore; Galerie Art 204 in Düsseldorf, Germany; Brooks Institute of Fine Arts Gallery and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, both in California; and the Firehouse Gallery & Art Center of the Weatherford Art Association in Texas.

Around Texas, Glenn is often invited to give a talk about art while his works are on exhibit. These ‘Art Talk/Exhibits’ have been held at the Parker Williams Library, Southpoint Club House, and the Houston Trinity United Methodist Church where he was also guest speaker for the Easter Sunrise Service. Recently, Glenn has also been invited to talk about his miraculous healing from Stage IV colon cancer at the Covina Community Church in California.

Despite acquiring a vast part of his expertise through professional experience, Glenn Bautista also built a solid academic foundation that includes his Certificate of Fine Arts from the University of the Philippines and Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts from the Brooks Institute of Fine Arts in California. He additionally studied lithography under Professor Rolf Sackenheim at the Staatliche Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, Germany.

More information on Glenn Bautista as well as a complete catalogue of his personal art collection may be viewed at his website, http://www.glennbautista.com. He also sells originals and prints of his artworks through http://glenn-studio.artistwebsites.com, which includes his ongoing project, Digi-ana Pastel Portraits. Glenn continues to stay open to any other creative possibilities in relation to his artworks.

My ’63 -’69 UST / UP Days

The UP Oblation / pen & ink - 92 x 193 cm /1965 by Glenn A. Bautista The UP Oblation was a pen and ink drawing that I did before I worked on the 'Complete Poems of Dr. Jose Rizal Monument'. Instead of letters or text, I made use of horizontal lines similar to the one we see on television. I improvised my own pens of different sizes by cutting the fountain pen tips to determine the width of each. I discovered that the fountain pens were a lot more effective than using the usual speedball pen tips. - glenn

Glenn drawing - Central UMCThis photo of me must have been taken in 1968, so 1968 less 1947 (my birth year) = 21. This must be a good guess ‘coz this was how I looked when I was 21. This photo must have been taken by my father, or by me using the 120 Yashica-D twin lens box camera’s self-timer. This was really my father’s camera, a camera he used while he was in the US during his studies in theology in New York.

To my left are two of my artworks: The pen & ink line drawing of the interior of the Central Methodist Church (circa 1963) based on a sketch I did, showing the left pulpit or lectern, and on its right, the box for the choir. Mrs. Daisy de Pano Parungao was our choir conductor then. Two of the pews on the foreground represent the many others behind. I used to fall asleep in these pews when the worship services were too long. The front railing with knee red cushions are for those who would either take communion, or just for a special prayer request or dedication, or for Glenn to take his first, second or even third drink of ‘grape juice’ and 3/8’ of bread, until my father whispered to my ears . . this is your last, Glenn, ok? . . . you might go past over heaven.

Having lived at the Central Church parsonage (interior- – all varnished wood) for eight years, I am quite familiar with its every ‘nook and cranny’. Below the pen and ink, is a study for a stained-glass window, having been influenced by the beautiful transparent colors of the many stained-glass windows at the Central Church interior, created by a certain craftsman, Mr. Kraut. His medium was the authentic material for stained glass work called, ‘antique glass’.

The books to my left were those of writers, Roger Fry, Herbert Read, CS Lewis and a few art brochures from art exhibits I had visited. The drawing board I was working on was handcrafted by my elder brother, I call, “Kuya Jun”, who now lives in Cerritos, California with his beautiful wife, Julie and lovely daughter, April. The ‘rattan’ table on my left is part of the parsonage’s furniture set.

This was my first oil painting copied from a small illustration about human anatomy from one of three books (below the stained-glass study) given to me by my father’s missionary friend. I will ask David to look for his name written on the three art books. These books are really a compilation of lessons from the Famous Art School instructors from the US, such as Norman Rockwell, Ben Stahl, etc. This was also the time when I won an international art competition held at the New York World’s Fair. Well, time really flies. I never realized that one day, I would be looking back to write about these photos David showed to me the last time I visited home.

OBLATION: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oblation_(University_of_the_Philippines): Several replicas of the Oblation were made for campuses of the University of the Philippines, some by National Artist Napoleon Abueva. The Oblation at the U.P. Visayas campus in Iloilo City was made by Professor Anastacio Caedo. 2005 National Artist nominee Glenn Bautista [4][5], likewise, did his celebrated version of the Oblation[5] in pen and ink as part of his schoolplates at the U.P. College of Fine Art under Professor Rebillon. The sculpture was registered at the Intellectual Property Office in the year 2004. Being the main symbol of the university, the Oblation is the centerpiece of many U.P.-related logos, like those of the Philippine Collegian and other official student publications, the U.P. Cooperative, and the U.P. Centennial emblem.

Hi Gemma, I wrote something in your FB message box. After this, I also want to ask you something about the Aguinaldo Centennial Commission in relation to a portrait of Aguinaldo I did that won 1st prize during my student days at UP. I’ve looked around for that Aguinaldo mural, but in vain. I hope you can help me find it. Take care, God bless.

(an excerpt from: The Uncommon Art of Glenn by Alice G. Guillermo)

*

Even as a student in the College of Fine Arts of the University of the Philippines, Glenn Bautista showed extraordinary accomplishment in art. Proof of his exemplary gifts are his drawings. One of them a personal exercise he did of the Guillermo Tolentino’s Oblation, the statue in front of Quezon hall that has become symbol of academic freedom in the University, with the ordinary medium of pen and ink on paper, he executed a precise and finely modelled drawing 6/ft. by 3’ft. of the statue in three-fourths view against the setting of the administration building. This he executed in a most difficult technique which required drawing fine, perfectly even, and precisely spaced horizontal lines, with tones and shadows exactly rendered by means of closer intervals. It was a highly disciplined exercise demanding the perfect coordination of eye and hand, as well as total control in the draughtsmanly execution of the thousands of parallel lines, without the least faltering, unevenness or inaccuracy which would easily show as imperfection in the demanding work. The wonder of it was that so impeccable was the completed drawing that the technique, extraordinary yet unobtrusive, gave way to the perfect clarity and justness of the graphic image.

But this was not all. A companion to this remarkable work is the artist’s pen-ink drawing rendering, 6′ ft. x 3′ ft. of Jose Rizal’s Huling Paalam or Last Farewell in a line by line transcription of the entire text of Rizal’s thirty-nine poems, including the poem of the title and one song, Las Orillas del Pasig, on the space of two master illustration boards. What makes this work amazing is that the handprinted words themselves, done by means of three kinds of technical pen, light, medium and dark, build up the image Rizal’s monument at Luneta Park with all features complete and in perfect scale. A masterpiece of precision, the written text with all the letters rigorously rendered with evenness and measure concludes exactly at the bottom right hand corner of the white board. – Glenn A.

My internet correspondence with Wawi Navarroza, a great young artist is the reason why we have these cyberpages of my school plates at UST and UP. I had to go back to the old school plates for the readers to understand how the Rizal Pen & Ink Drawing came about. This topic got initiated upon Wawi’s invite on Dr. Jose Rizal’s latest book being launched. – glenn

.

My ‘1963-69 UST & UP Fine Arts school plates’ led to other major artworks such as the pen and ink drawing of the Jose Rizal Monument. It was composed of thirty-none (39) poems and one song “A Orillas del Pasig” of our beloved national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal himself. The song was translated into English by my late friend Alfredo Veloso. The Rizal Pen & Ink Drawing was on exhibit upon the request of Ms. Imelda Romualdez Marcos for about 6 years at the Jose Rizal Shrine at Fort Santiago. I meticulously worked on this pen & ink drawing daily for about two years. I was briefly interrupted to rest my eyes upon my father’s request. He encouraged me to tour the Philippines for a brief respite, which I did. However, I came back with a lot of drawings of my travels especially drawings I did of Sagada – – a place about 7-8 hours from Baguio. Most of the “Sagada drawings” have already been sold, but, here is a link to a few drawings that I continued to work on using the same ‘cogon-abaca papers’, hand-made by Louie Stewart, even when I was in Germany and Spain:

 http://glennbautista.com/art/cogonabacadrawings.html

Most of these drawings were initially lightly sketched using poisonous charcoal I extracted from batteries I found on the wayside. I eventually worked further on these drawings upon reaching home. I made it a point to apply fixatif protection on both sides of the drawing.

Rizal / pen & ink – a take off from a school plate / UP-College of Fine Arts, Diliman, Quezon City.
The icons or images below were school plates for Technique & Reproduction and Composition classes under Professor Rebillon. The written encircled ‘1R’ meant a perfect grade and ‘R’ is the professor’s initial signature approval. These were exercises for pen and ink textures and techniques used to achieve modeling or “chiaroscuro” depicting the basic forms of various objects such as the sphere, cone, cube, pyramid and the cylinder. We were allowed to introduce new techniques such as the one I did by making use of the English alphabets or written word. This particular technique led to my major artwork, the “Jose Rizal Monument” which incorporated his (39) thirty-nine poems and one song, “A Orillas del Pasig”. The other school plates were exercises in color combination of secondary and tertiary colors. – glenn

Joya n gb sketch-sml


Thanks RodS & Dan-dan for these two images of Ninong “Peping” Joya and my quick sketch I did in his drawing class. I merely visited the UPCFA in Diliman, QC when I met Ninong “Peping” on the fourth floor and he invited me to sketch in his drawing class. He gave me a sketch pad and a charcoal pencil to participate with his students. After I sketched, he got my sketch and talked about it to the class, having a deep understanding as to what made me do a skeletal and partially flesh drawing of the nude model. He said that only if one understands the human body can one come up with such an interpretative sketch . . . Ninong “Peping” gave time to be with people to encourage them to be creative, especially with me. We miss you, Ninong “Peping”. (at University of the Philippines, Gonzales Hall, Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines)
• Glenn A. Bautista: Here’re are some comments from Dan-dan’s previous posting of my sketch with Prof. Jose Joya.
• Glenn A. Bautista: Yes, Dan-dan, I remember this sketch . . . my godfather, National artist, Jose “Peping” Joya invited me to join his drawing class when I visited the UP College of Fine Arts. I remember him telling something to his class about this sketch. Can you take a better photo using daylight w/o the glare so I can include this to my art site? How did this sketch get to your mom? Can you ask her? Now, can you guess what the drawing is about? This is a rare drawing in a rare setting. Thanks for letting me know. Meron pa bang iba? Can you take good photos for my site? I know you have a few more pastels. Just angle the framed pastels so you don’t get the glare, and background it against a dark background so as not to have a reflection or mirror image. Thanks a lot .
• Dan Bautista: I didn’t ask how she got it. I’ll try to take a better pic next time uncle. I left the house na po kasi. Just wanted to share it, i bet it gives you a lot of good memories. June 29, 2012 at 7:53pm via mobile

• Rizalinda Bautista: Hi Glenn! this sketch has been with me for a long-long time. I think i salvaged it from a heap of things for trash when we were together in BF Homes. It’s crumpled and torn on its sides but I managed to fix it a little bit. I think I also have a sketch u made of Dondon as a very little boy playing near you while you were sketching-painting. This one didn’t have your signature tho but am sure it was around late 1979 to early 1980 when you sketched it. I will ask Dandan to take a pic of it to be sent to you one of these days. -June 27 at 8:56pm –

• Glenn A. Bautista: Yes, DingR, I have been digging up images from my hard disks and photos sent in to me by David, many of which I had not seen. Just organizing these images is not an easy task. But having the present digital tools right in front of me, I should not really be complaining. Now, I seem to understand why you love to write, a skill I have totally neglected. Thanks, DingR . .

. Another photo w/ Senator Jose Diokno . . this was "Free Press" times. I remember names like Climaco, Salonga, Recto, Osias, Osmena, Laurel, Manahan, etc. I used to read Leon O. Ty's political magazine, "Examiner" and those of Soc Rodrigo's. I had my Arts & Sciences and Fine Arts subjects which buildings were not too far from each other - - a good walk for an exercise in between subjects. I was enjoying two scholarships that allowed me to finish college, UP College and University, and CMLI scholarships. A third and fourth scholarships for further studies I availed of were for US and Germany.
