Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This is exactly what these artists would like to convey—the act of submission in showing a piece of yourself, through art, to contribute to a cultural union. It begins with Ronyel Compra’s "Hinagiban ni Lola” series, made using a technique called luta, which bears some semblance to printmaking. “Hinagiban ni Lola” means “grandmother’s weapon,” so it’s only apt that Compra created the piece by placing a cleaver underneath a piece of cloth and rubbing the cloth over soil. This resulted in a detailed image of the object with a rough but bold texture.
