Liv Vinluan, Paulo Vinluan and Nicole Sy Coson hold simultaneous shows, which are on view until Aug. 30 at Finale Art File, Warehouse 17, La Fuerza, 2241 Chino Roces Ave., Makati City.

At the Tall Gallery, Liv depicts the boat as a compelling symbol of loss, change and survival in “The Savage Sea.”

At the Video Room, Paulo creates complex configurations using three main forms — the human figure, the sphere and the cube — and in the process unpacks a repertoire of references and stories related to them in “Block: New Paintings.”

At the Upstairs Gallery, Nicole presents small monotype prints with forms that straddle the line between abstraction and reality.
