Your Loss Is Your Gain

Collage on Board Wall Mounted, 7.5' x 23', 2013.

 

Your Loss Is Your Gain is an interactive 3D collage installation made of street posters and magazine cutouts. The work engages and amuses the viewer, though it is layered with provoking imagery.  Hidden amongst the barrage of vibrant stimulus are archaic Filipino characters, known as Baybayin, donning my self-portrait. Just as my connection to my heritage has faded living in a Western society dominated by popular culture, the symbols are diffused into the background.
