Impy Pilapil is not slowing down in unearthing ancient worlds and reintroducing them to our creative consciousness
Not many artists have mastered several mediums to create exquisite works that exhibit their inclination for experimentation and continuous artistic journey. Diversity and versatility are characteristics only a few artists possess, most especially in the Philippines. Imelda “Impy” Pilapil is one of those. Her oeuvre includes prints, glass and sculptures made of wood, steel, metal, stone and marble, to name a few. Seeing an Impy Pilapil work is both a visceral and esoteric experience. One can visualise energy, emotion, heritage and philosophy frozen in time and embodied into something tactile yet dynamically flowing in every curvature and softened edge.
