Artist Statement

Indigenous beliefs still play an important role in the modern-day Philippines. Although many beliefs have been changed to suit everyday needs and some forgotten or replaced. Many still practice these rituals to appease spirits, gods and the dead. This painting is about offerings and votives to the unseen. Typically these would be offered to ancestors to let them know they are still remembered. Lighting candles and offering wines and flowers on special occasions such as birthdays, death anniversary and even festivals. etc
