The Transit of Eros by Apolinario Cruz



Pol Cruz was born in the province of Bulacan, the Philippines on the 19 July 1960. He travelled around South East Asia and eventually settled in Australia in 1980. He now resides at a farming property in Bogan Gate, Central West NSW, Australia.

Largely self taught, he also attended the University of the Philippines, the San Francisco Art Institute and the Ceramic at Orange TAFE, NSW, Australia. He is presently an art time teacher at the TAFE Institute and holds classes and workshops at primary and high school levels in both public and private schools in NSW. Pol works in a variety of mediums including canvas, paints, paper, clay, and found and recycled objects. He has exhibited widely in both public and private galleries in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and provincial cities and towns in Australia; in Paris and Nice, in France: in San Francisco and Napa Valley in California, USA.
His works are held in both public and private collections in Asia, Europe, USA and Australia.

“The markings I make on the surface of the canvas are only the beginning of the clue and a visual guide to the intellectual reaction the viewer will have towards my work.”
“In this collection of paintings, I included some pieces I painted in the last five years in order to give the viewers an historical glimpse of my work.”
“In Greek mythology, Eros was conceived when the Wind laid a silver egg in the womb of Darkness. When hatched, he set the Universe in motion. He was neither male nor female.”
“The “Transit of Eros” is about journeys into intellectual, emotional and erotic relationships with other humans, places and time. It is a combination of reality and fantasy.”
