_Night Walker: Studies In Multiple Perspective_

This electronic exhibit was commissioned by my high school class, 4-F Elans, as one of its activities commemorating its 50th year. The beneficiary of sales is the Philippine Jesuit Aid Association (PJAA). Interested buyers should contact Mr. Ramon Puno via ramonvpuno@yahoo.com. Not me.

Artist's Notes:

Night Walker: Studies In Multiple Perspective
Tony Perez
New Works In Oil

I see rainbows even in darkness.

When I was 18 I loved roaming the streets of Cubao at night, taking in the lights and the shadows, marveling at how colors look different from what they do in the daytime, passing by workers closing up shop, listening to their conversations and their dreams, merging with the district before going home and processing my observations in the privacy of my own room.

In this exhibit I revisit those nights and see how "closing time" can also mean "retirement" for myself and my former classmates of 4-F Elans, which celebrates its 50th year. It is an exciting time in life because the night never shows up treasures and surprises until someone shines light on them.

Most of these paintings depict scenes from my neighborhood, in Cubao. It is the height of the Philippine summer, and people are switching from incandescents to fluorescents to dispel the heat and generate the kind of brightness they can work by, and read by, and write by, and paint by, and see themselves all the better by.

I walk the night. Come, walk with me.

Pentecost Sunday, May 20, 2018

Posted by my professor Manny de Guzman at Maryhill School of Theology:
"Sharing this reflections from my wall, with Tony's painting. - CHILDREN OF THE VOICE… It’s Pentecost Sunday, known popularly for the symbol of the tongues of fire for the Holy Spirit descending upon the community of disciples. Today I chose another symbol and another personage to speak of the birthing of the prophetic Christian movement…
"I’m wrapping up the academic year with defenses of final integration projects by student-groups. About 210 students sat in my classes this entire year: male, female; lay people, seminarians, priests, consecrated persons; in various ministries in the church and professions in civil society. Colleagues have been asking me if there are differences among the students in the different schools where I taught. I avoid directly answering them because of the diversity of course I directed and the range of number of students per class, from 10 to 49. I also respect the theological orientations or thrusts of the schools, and indeed there are differences, yet I try to be creative and productive in the spaces given to me as a laboratory for new landscapes and new sights. Some will say, 'It’s the school you choose' that matters. Maybe so. But the schools are as good as the teachers in the classrooms. There are teachers like me who teach across different schools and they bear their own disciplines as much as they leave their marks of theological personality and style which they impart to students.
"The mural below is a triptych of 'John the Baptist' painted by Tony Perez, a Filipino visual artist, lyricist, novelist, playwright, editor, clinical therapist, psychic trainer, and an alumnus of Maryhill School of Theology (M.A. Religious Studies). Measuring 5 feet x 12 feet, it hangs in the inner study room of the MST library. Whenever I sit and face the triptych, while preparing for my classes, reading books or papers of students, I find it as a constant reminder that we all are John the Baptist.
"We teachers are in the same boat as John the Baptist, whose role is to prepare the way for a deeper encounter with the Messiah. We do not make any miracles or exorcisms but hopefully like John teachers will be remembered for being the voice in the wilderness. That makes teachers examples for students to follow, that everyone’s calling has dignity to it and God seems to know better than we do and God seems to know better than what is in us (J. Green).
"Teachers of theology, again as John was, are a contrast-people to the world’s preferences. His voice in the wilderness is the voice that co-missioned him to prophesy against the ills of the world and announce the coming of a radically different world. John refused to be silent and it can be said that the prophetic Christian movement began with him: 'In his recorded teaching to the people there is not a word about the customary ritual of religion, about increased Sabbath observance, about stricter washings and sacrifices, or the ordinary exercises of piety. He spoke only of repentance, of ceasing from wrongdoing. He hailed the professional exponents of religion who came to hear him, as a brood of snakes wriggling away from the flames of the judgment. ... The way to prepare for the Messianic era and to escape the wrath of the Messiah was to institute a brotherly [and sisterly] life and to equalize social inequalities' (W. Rauschenbusch). As teachers we don’t teach just knowledge but a vision of life and a mission in the world. Jesus heard also a voice, The Voice. It is He who embodied the voice in actions through what he called the reign-of-God-already-in-our-midst.
"We are all the 'daughter of a sound' ('bat kol', בּת קול; 'kol' literally means 'echo' or 'whisper' but used in biblical sense it is 'divine voice'). Teachers could not have been using their voices if they didn’t hear and listen also to the voice within them and in the world around them, speaking of their vocation and mission. John and us, theology teachers, are path-breakers, path-makers, path-seekers. May all our students become voices of the voiceless in a divided and wounded world and trek the path of peace and justice no matter how dusty, winding, and precarious.
"Till then, happy vacation to students as we teachers need it too. Carpe diem, make your life extraordinary."

My _Saint John The Baptist Triptych_ Goes To Maryhill School of Theology Quezon City

I now have the blessing of CICM Provincial and Reverend President of Maryhill School of Theology (MST) Ramon Caluza, Reverend Dean Richard Diaz, the MST Administration, and the (currently inactive) MST alumni association to install my John The Baptist Triptych on the west wall of the MST library. We will be picked up at 2:00 PM. I am taking Benjie with me to do the installation with brackets.

So inspired to do more works for MST Quezon City. I hope to fill the building with art. I may not live long enough to complete this. But, at least, I thought of doing it.

These photos were hastily taken in my living room with fluorescent ceiling lighting and using (albeit unreliable) auto-correct.

_Storyteller (Portrait of Christine Bellen)_

I fancied the idea of a writer painting portraits of his fellow writers. Christine Bellen is famous in the Philippines for her retelling of Mga Kuwento Ni Lola Basyang (The Stories of Grandmother Basyang). Her children's books have been adapted to different media, including children's ballet.

I finished this portrait on my son Nelson's birthday, then did some revisions the same day and the next day, my mother's birthday.
