  • In Ghost Painting: Toldo Category, Ardeña characterizes the rural livelihood of Bacolod through its ubiquitous materials. He gathered used clothes from textile stores and ukay-ukay, shops that sell second-hand clothing, some of which were sent as relief goods by donor countries. He then painted and stitched the fabrics together with signages from local schools, creating large collages presented as tarpaulins, an often overlooked yet widely used material in urban and rural landscapes.
