Cirilo Domine

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. 

Philippine-born, American artist, Cirilo Domine lives and works in Los Angeles.  He received his BA from UCLA (1993) and his MFA from UC Irvine (1996).  He is an artist working in the genres of drawing, installation, and mixed media. 

He received a Getty undergraduate grant and interned at the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Venice, CA where he was involved in all aspects of exhibition design.  He is also curator, collaborator and activist and worked for the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center’s Advocate Gallery.  

He has had one-person exhibitions at Deepriver, Commonwealth and Council and has been included in group shows at M&B Gallery, the MAK Center at the Schindler House, Pinta Dos/Philippine Expressions Gallery, Huntington Botanical Gardens, Plug-In Gallery and  Exit Art.

Past projects include:  still.here garment performance at the Palm Springs Art Museum, Pintados Philippine Expressions Gallery, San Pedro, California, MYLT (Me Love You Long Time) at the Aljira Center for the Arts, New Jersey; Sextile at Commonwealth and Council, Men’s Work at the Fabric Factory, San Francisco.   He organized  I’m pure i tea, a traditional tea ceremony at the MAK Center’s Schindler House where he collaborated with artists Anna Sew Hoy, Michael Queenland, Pato Hebert, Ashley Hunt and others.
