Nicola. Serigraph Print. Gold Ink on Black
Probably one of my favorites from the collection. Winged Victory, Nike was my inspiration for this one hence the ornamental wings and the lady subject. Thank you to my classmate, Minhee for posing for me on this one :)

Draconem. Serigraph print. Gold Acrylic on Black.
I have to admit, I was surprise how much attention this piece got. As much as it was an exploration of transferring ornament to subject, It’s really just one of those ”I’ll just make it because I want to” kind of art works.

Mutatio. Serigraph print. Silver Acrylic on Black.
Another one of the pieces from Impression/Reflection. This is one of the first pieces where I started experimenting with photography and incorporating it into the serigraph process. As you can see at this point, I still haven’t gotten the hang of adjusting its contrast enough to properly let the paint penetrate through the screen. 
This piece was an attempt to illustrate a contrast between modernity and tradition. Having a very classic Filipiniana inspired design encapsulate an image that reveals very modern-day ideas, having photography mesh into ornament, it was a challenge of fitting in elements that often contradict meld into a cohesive piece.

Thank you to everyone who came and showed their support! Much love to you guys! :D

Late Batman day post! Here’s an info-graphic I did for a paper I wrote last semester: How audience, society and cultural context has influenced the design evolution of an iconic, fictional character. Batmaning at a graduate level :))
