Commonwealth and Council

In the Hyphen

Cirilo Domine


Commonwealth & Council presents concurrent exhibitions by Cirilo Domine and Deborah Hede that traverse psychogeography and scopic permutations of landscape and urban planning.

Cirilo Domine’s new series of appliquéd, stitched and collaged textiles are scopic permutations of macro and micro sociology of landscape where local and global histories are wiped and cleaned-up, made presentable or revised and covered up. Literally torn from their  domestic function and reconstructed, the stripe and plaid patterns of  found towels and shirts become topographical insurrections from below, above, and beyond. Domine’s sutured, metaphorical hubs of lines, grids  and running stitches evoke impermanence of borders and permeability of  boundaries.

Cirilo Domine is a Philippine-born, American artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. Domine received his BA from the University of California, Los Angeles (1994) and MFA from the University  of California, Irvine (1996). His work has been exhibited and performed at DeepRiver, Artist Curated Projects with MAK Center at the Schindler House, Huntington Botanical Gardens, Exit Art, Plug In Gallery and L.A. Municipal Art Gallery. He currently works for NS Temp/Issey Miyake, Los Angeles.
