Fernando Zobel By Rod Paras Perez
"An art biography of Philippine artist Fernando Zóbel. "For a painter perhaps the most striking thing about the Philippines is the quality of light. Normally we have to deal with a white colorless glare that bounces off every surface and refuses to cast a shadow....It is like looking at a naked light bulb. The implications of this kind of light are legion. Because although a painter may not paint what he sees, his surroundings condition what he paints."
