Large Scale Enamel Painting by Ernest Concepcion at the Manila Pen


This is one of Ernest Concepcion's art works at Lopez Museum which we visited last May 19, 2012. We were lucky enough to meet Ernest Concepcion. He is a very talented artist. Before returning to the United Stated, he will have a Solo Exhibit  here in the Philippines. Please feel free to drop by his solo art show. See you there~ ! Here is the complete details:

What:      Ernest Concepcion's Solo Exhibit
Where:    Blanc Gallery Manila Peninsula, Makati Philippines
When:      May 26, 2012
Time:       6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Medium:  Enamel Painting
Topic:       "All Quiet On The Eastern Front" 

"This show is a return to my black and white series of works that engage in conflict and battle. The images of these new enamel paintings are based from World War 2 photographs combined with my own day to day personal experiences".  - Ernest Concepcion

BIO OF ERNEST CONCEPCION :

Ernest Concepcion was born in Manila, Philippines where he received his BFA then moved to the US in 2002. It was in the lonely town of Englewood, New Jersey where he began The Line Wars, a series of black and white drawings depicting opposing forces engaged in ridiculous battle based on the entertainments of childhood and adolescence. He moved to Brooklyn and participated in a number of art residencies including the LMCC Workspace Program, the Bronx Museum of Art Artists-in-the-Marketplace (AIM) program, the Artists Alliance Inc. Rotating Studio Program, the Lower East Side Printshop Keyholder Residency, the LMCC Swing Space Program at Governors Island and an artist residency in Beijing, China via NY Arts.

Through extensive studio time and experimentation, he eventually broke away from the formulaic style of the drawings and explored different approaches to conflict creating an entirely new series of works including painting, sculpture and installation. With a significant body of work, Concepcion was able to exhibit both here and abroad and has had four solo shows in the last two years. In 2011 he was both a New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) finalist in the Drawing Category and a Nominee for the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant. Currently, he is a full-time artist making new works and a graphic novel based on the conflict-ridden planet of Ona to be released soon.

Hand Paraffin Treatment at Bioessence


I visited Bioessence not for a facial this time around but for a hand paraffin treatment. Bioessence offers this treatment for free to its valued clients and if you want a foot paraffin, you just have to pay Php 150.00.
 
Paraffin wax is a white or colorless wax made from petroleum byproducts. Paraffin is used primarily to make candles or as an ingredient in cosmetics and for creating waxed paper.
 
Bioessence used this machine to dissolve the paraffin wax to be used for my hand paraffin test errr treatment. Ha ha ha! Okay, that is a joke. I am such a lousy joker. Ha ha ha! Sorry po.
Shown above is the Bioessence attendant preparing the hand paraffin treatment. Paraffin wax is melted in a special warmer or double boiler until it becomes clear or translucent liquid.
 The Bioessence attendant sprayed alcohol to each of my hands.
 
She then wiped it dry using a soft tissue
The Bioessence attendant then dipped my hands directly into the warmer. Another option is to pour the liquid wax into plastic bags and each hand is slipped into a bag of paraffin.
 
The hands are covered in the wax for several minutes.
Wrapped my hands into a plastic laminate. 
 
I felt like a chicken. Ha ha ha! I used to sell roasted chicken as a sideline and I wrapped the chicken in a plastic laminate exactly like this plastic laminate in Bioessence. 
 
The finished product.
 
I have two (2) hands, the left and the right.
 After wrapping my hands in plastic laminate, they put my two hands inside these gloves.
Paraffin wax is said to retain heat, and this heat increases the skin's circulation and opens pores on the hands, allowing the lubricants in the wax to penetrate and soften the skin.
 
After 20 minutes, they then removed the gloves and the platic, then put my hands inside these booties.
 
By the way, I am not sure if it is really called booties. The attendant told me that it is how they call this white thingy.
 
She said this electric glove-like machine will keep your hands softer than ever before and your "pasma" will be cured. Awww! Amazing, isn't it. She further explained that the heat provided by melted paraffin wax is absorbed by the skin and tissue on which it is placed, making it beneficial for people suffering from arthritis or other joint or muscle pain.

WARNING: DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS!

Why am I saying that? It is because paraffin comes from petroleum products, people with chemical sensitivities may suffer side effects from paraffin wax. If you're going to try this at home take extra precautions and keep out of reach of children to avoid serious burns.
A visit at Bioessence always makes me feel pampered. The staff and the atmosphere at Bioessence wrap me in calm comfort and wash away my stress. It is a place that gives me solace. How I wish Bioessence will let us try this room. I have not personally tried this yet but they told us you could rent this room for Php1,800 plus the various services that you'll avail like massage, bubble bath, facial etc.

  • please at pati ako naiinip na!!! Mga walanghiya ang mga sinungaling. Tandaan ninyo di natutulog ang Diyos.
  • Tapos ilabas din dapat ang baho ng mga dinidios nila sa ABS-CBN ha.
  • gusto ko malaman kung ano ang pinagsasabi ni eric john salut. Nang maglabasan na.
  • Eric, what's the problem with my daughter? Has she done anything karumal-dumal? Or do you guys just choose to have a problem with her? Di ba puedeng mag-move-on na lahat?
  • If @ericjohnsalut or anyone else says may 'baho' si KC they better support it w/ LOTS of proof/evidence/witnesses. Kasi kung gusto namin manira, ang dami naming kilalang involved noon at ngayon.
  • If KC has done anything to upset anyone, or bring shame to our family, or ruin my trust in her, or ruin my NAME, AKO MISMO ANG BUBUGBOG SA ANAK KO AT HIHINGI NG TAWAD SA PUBLIKO BAGO PA MAKARATING SA MGA NANINIRA.

  • Yun ang nakakalungkot. May mga nandun na di marunong ihiwalay ang mga nabuong friendship at pinagsamahan sa work. Tapos sariling artist nila like KC, sisiraan. At ng EXECUTIVE nila ha! Yan ang KAPAMILYA? Dun sa amin maliit lang ang station namin (sa ngayon lang) pero mga totoo kasama ko. No one has LIED to me yet from TV5.
  • Sa ABS-CBN MERON. One of the reasons I left. Sorry, just telling the truth.
  • Ok guys, at least nasabi ko na sa kanila ang gusto ko sabihin. Basta ang importante, happy kami sa show namin! And I am excited to go to work every taping day kahit maduling ako sa puyat kasi we aim to change kahit one life at a time, and do good works. So I choose to focus on those! At least din lumabas na ang tunay na kulay ng ibang "kapamilya" kaya mas naa-appreciate ko ang mga KAPATID ko now. God bless us
  • Oh ano ang iba noon? Bakit di nya gawin at may threat sya? It's the same thing, wala pa lang detalye!
  • Oh dear SALAMAT naman di totoo yon! Mahal ng Dios si KC. Di pinatagal. Wala kasing NILOLOKO at TINATAPAKAN

  • Sharon Cuneta: siguro sa palengke ka lumaki no? Kasi pang-defend mo sa paninira mo "palengke" whatever. Eh palengkera means only maingay na nakikipagaway. Twitter ito. NAGTATYPE AKO NG TAHIMIK! Palibhasa kayo ang mga may ugaling kanal kaya kunyari pinapasa nyo sa iba para di kayo mahalata (kala nyo). Hahahahahahahahaha! Bastos ka na di ka pa nakakaintindi! Yuck.
  • jesusasicadsenson: ms.shawie hindi talga kayang bilhin ng 1 billion mo ang peace of mind noh? smile na :))
  • Sharon Cuneta : hindi ka magkapeace of mind dahil di ikaw ang inoffer-an ng 1 billion no? Mahirap ba i-grasp? Makapapel lang. Kawawa ka naman.
  • diana fer: the, patola ka na naman. Nakakadismaya,
  • Sharon Cuneta: iha, exec. ng ABS-CBN ang naninira sa anak kong kapamilya nila. Huwag ka na pumapel. Di ka importante kaya papansin ka.
  • Cassandra Samuel: Naku Mega, u are on top of this. Better talk to ur friend, Boss Gabby & make sumbong @ericjohnsalut and @ROXY_LIQUIGAN
  • Sharon Cuneta: I've already texted 2 bosses. Thanks
  • Humton: why is kc macho?
  • Sharon Cuneta: why are u an idiot?
  • Sharon Cuneta on KC's Abortion: OH MY GOD... NAPAKALAKING KASALANAN ANG KASINUNGALINGAN MO... I am lifting you up to God after I type this. Patay ka sa parusa Niya!!!! eto lang, sabi nga ni FPJ, POKS KITA. Kung sinabi mo yan sa harap ko, sorry na lang pero pabubugbog kita. Oh and yes --- 10 million pesos cash pag natweet mo kahit na anong pruweba. At saan ba at kailan supposedly nangyari ang abortion na ito? At matanong ko lang -- si kiko pa nagbihis sa kanya wala ba kami ng yaya nya? Ano pa? 10M din yun sayang! Dali pengeng proof huwag puro chismis!!! Demonyita
