ARTIST STATEMENT
I identify myself as a Filipina artist and I strive to define my art practice in terms of the
continuously evolving role of women artists in Philippine society. In line with this objective I am
currently focused on the study of the roles that women played in 19th century Philippines.
I am constantly exploring, asking and learning. Gathering elements that I can use as I seek to
cultivate my own artistic vocabulary, to polish my technique and hone my art practice.
The ideas behind most of my works are from observations of contemporary culture from a female
perspective and reflecting on how my observations relate to me on the personal level. Through
observation, reflection, and reaction, I endeavor to transform myself into someone who is aware of
her part in society and in history in general.
Recently, I have become interested in old photographs that archive obscure but interesting pieces of
Philippine history. This lead me to inquiring on the relation and analogy of the past (what had
occurred and the process of how the people think then) with what is happening at the present.
I am a storyteller and my works echo my inner voice. It is my most fervent hope that someday,
when I have achieved my fullest potential, my voice will gain significance and transcend time.
