'Fiesta'

Year: 1989
Size: 30 x 42
Medium: Oil, Collage on canvas

Town fiestas are a regular feature in Philippine culture. Inherited from the Spanish rule as a means of spreading the faith, this religious folk festival has evolved through generations in varied forms. The artist attempts to encapsulate its appeal through a bird's eye view, placing the religious procession and patron saint at center focus. Although the original format was borrowed from other sources, the artist innovates wlth an open-form composition, combining different materials and playing spaces by interlocking shapes of rooftops and street pavements with fiesta's buntings.
