Onliest is a 3-man show featuring works grounded on a sentiment that Brian Bernardo, Rudolph Doane, and Jukus Sepada personally empathize with — being alone. The coming together of their pieces can be collectively seen as a gradient of emotions that paint the image of loneliness felt from an amorous affair. Onliest consists of imagined scenarios that impress on one’s awareness towards loneliness.

Brian Bernardo’s pieces echoes the banalities of adoration and rejection. Alluding to his malady of singleness intertwined with despondencies that are similarly experienced by anyone who has gone through the woes of romance.

Rudolph Doane makes sense of the issue by considering its categorical effects through his works. He finds being alone as a key-piece to building strong characters thus painting his subjects in their full forms with partial distortions.

While Jukus Sepada brings a non-personal interpretation dynamic in his artwork. Sepada aligns his interpretation to an Anthony Burgess quote: “Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone,” a fitting description to how loneliness is best experienced.
