Hidden Faces

Live Music + Art Exhibit

Celebrated my 2017 birthday with a group exhibit with my favorite visual artists and a live music gig with bands and artists I've worked with since entering the music industry. Held at Shutterspace Studios, November 6.

Hidden faces is a tribute to artists in the shadows, behind the scenes.

hidden Faces explores the expressions of humanity through forms energized by movement.
The obscured facial features in these works force us to deepen our attention to the context of the works, in the hopes of drawing in the viewer to engage.

2017 / Literally translates to “other side”, this composite shows two different aspects of one place showing the smallness of man against the world.
The vision of nature’s grandeur looming over him, yet he remains dominant over it, turning it upside down to build man made mountains.

Don't Walk Away With Cold Feet
2017 / When human interactions become blurred memories, you start to question the truth in experience.
Stay present; there will be butterflies and knives.
Even connection isn't worthwhile when half-assed.

Past Lives
Although known for its windmills, Sorae Ecology Park in South Korea also features crisp, mirror-like wetlands.
The image highlights the silhouettes of photographers walking on the same, narrow path.
They stopped every now and then to observe, but remained steadfast on their direction: home.

Words
2017 / Inspired by the chaotic process of a hand-lettering artist, this piece is an ode to the numerous thoughts that come into the artist's mind as she creates art
for others to see. Behind every work is a repository of words and symbols that are juxtaposed, showcasing the complexities of turning letters into visual art.

Haplos
2017 / “Haplos” is part of a series entitled Debosyon that captures the annual traslación in Manila, the procession wherein the image of the Black Nazarene is transported from its shrine in Intramuros to Quiapo Church. It exemplifies the significance of religious materials in the nature of Catholicism, particularly in the Philippines — artifacts regarded with a high religious reverence through which Filipinos express their faith, forming a bond between the material and the spiritual that is deeply personal and transcendent.

Wormhole
2017 / Would you leave home if you find the backdoor to the universe?
