I am an artist who explores the different possibilities of using fiber as an art form. Crochet, knitting, knotting, embroidery, macrame, and sewing - these are just some of the techniques I use to create immersive installations, both tactile and interactive. The use of shapes, colors, texture, space and movement encourages open interpretation.
Fiber is an underutilized aspect in contemporary arts in the Philippines despite its traditional role in the country’s culture. The intent of my art is to re-awaken in today’s setting the appreciation and relevance of these.
Spontaneity, intuition and impulses are integral parts of the process – rooted in my discoveries having lived with the indigenous people belonging to the Talaandig tribe. This leads to an intended ambiguity regarding meanings and themes that encourages debate and individual appreciation. The conscious effect leads to association to relevant issues from self-healing, the environment, science, politics, cultural appropriation and feminism.
The underlying narrative is to share my personal journey to seek enlightenment.
