Inang Appuh

Oil canvas and mixed media
2019

I pay tribute to the beautiful colors and textures of the Ifugao and the Kalinga— both the people and their weaves. Every contrast in color, warp and groove of their weave are a living expression of their people’s beliefs and aspirations. My work is a testament to their remarkable artistry and to the appuhs that pass on the skills and their heritage over generations, just like Inang Appuh.
