Sculptural piece - " Sugo "  - on the other hand, is made entirely of paper. It is free-standing and is a fusion, literally, of a giant fish-like form and a toy-like warplane. The work, Daquioag said, is a commentary on the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA). He is a prize-winning painter who had recently added a Juror's Prize in the prestigious Philippine Art Awards to his list of achievements. He'd also done mural-sized paintings for the Co Tec Tai Medical Museum, one of which, the " Brain Drain ", is an apt depiction of that disturbing (to some at least) phenomenon of health workers needing to leave for jobs abroad. With " Sugo ", Daquioag trod on unfamiliar ground, so to speak, because it is a far cry from the oils and watercolors that he had already mastered years before.
