Understanding and appreciating art is a process of deconstructing. You divide and piece each component, information, characteristic... And you interpret these details based on your significant human experience. As you do this, a new tidbit is thrown into the pile and the way you interpret the work now evolves. Like in a wheelbarrow, it is set to carry this pile of deconstructed art to its new adaptation, its new meaning--- an unending process of constant change. And that is how my works are formed, and how they evolve. The strokes and textures too, illustrate how very personal and expressionistic they are.
My immersion in the Philippine Contemporary Art scene has kept me hungry to create. Filipino artists have made waves in the international scenes with strength and sophistication in their works. And this has inspired me to create even more. As a Filipino artist who is now based in Houston, working on a canvas brings out diversity in my thoughts and experiences. It is where my unspoken words are written, and where my deepest thoughts are shown.
