Photograph of Roberto Chabet's The Four Directions. The work, together with Dreams: 100 Years, is part of an extended diptych and were exhibited simultaneously at Finale Art Gallery and West Gallery, SM Megamall from 29 March - 9 April 1999.
The Four Directions at Finale Art Gallery is a large-scale, four-panel, heavily painted work in-laid with harmonicas. The work is inspired by an Allen Ginsberg poem titled 'On Cremation of Chogyam Trungpa, Vidyadhara.' The four colours used in the paintings - yellow, white, green, and red - are based on the colours of the Tibetan flag. The paintings were done by artist Elaine Roberto-Navas, one of Chabet's former students at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts.
Dreams: 100 Years at West Gallery is a space-specific installation that anthologizes images and objects (alphabet blocks, snare drums, crowbar, conch shell, and a painting based on a photograph of Joseph Cornell's shelves) used in the artist's earlier series titled The Interpretation of Dreams (1995).
