Artist's Statement

In my work, I examine the elusiveness of memory, childhood, displacement, and also attempt to define my identity as a Filipino-American. Early in my childhood my parents moved me from the Philippines---a place of old familiar smells, colors, and textures---to Long Island suburbia, a place of new homes, malls, and clean bright surfaces.
Through a long period of painting, plastering, carving and sanding, I create color fields and textures evocative of my childhood home. Utilizing a delicate color palette and unusual materials, such as doilies, fabric swatches, plaster, and house paint, I create the essence of a forgotten past and uncertain future. Often scratched into the surface are drawings of my long-lost family members or characters borrowed from time.
