Cirilo Domine is a Philippine-born, American artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. He received his BA from UCLA (1993) and his MFA from UC Irvine (1996). He works in the genres of drawing, installation, and mixed media. Encyclopedic rather than serial, his works point to an exchange and reciprocation to the many cultures and spheres he is part of. Visually and culturally crossing bridges, he negotiates and recognizes the absences in history, and consciously translates and mistranslates systems and forms to create new subjectivities.
He has had one-person exhibitions at Deepriver, Commonwealth and Council, and has been included in group shows at M&B Gallery, the Palm Springs Art Museum, the MAK Center at the Schindler House, Pinta Dos/Philippine Expressions Gallery, Huntington Botanical Gardens, Plug-In Gallery in Winnipeg, and Exit Art in New York. He received a Getty undergraduate grant and interned at the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Venice, CA. He is also a curator, collaborator, and activist and has curated for the LA Gay & Lesbian Center’s Advocate Gallery.
