'The Church of Daraga'

Year: 1989
Size: 21 x 29
Medium: Ink, Sedimental

The subject is an eighteenth century church in -the province of Albay, and among the oldest surviving Spanish colonial churches in the Philippines. Here the medium illustrates not only to the subject's historical attributes, being a unique example of local baroque, but - through the weathered or moss like character of ink sediments - also expresses the unspoiled physical nature of an old relic. The work is currently on display at Cebu City Museum..
