"Creativity is essentially a lonely art. An even lonelier struggle. To some a blessing. To others a curse. It is in reality the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea."

One On One
There are a lot of unpredictables involved and the spontaneity of the process demands a lot of energy. It is a printing process where the artist doesn't have to think about the technical aspects of printmaking. Improvisation, imagination, impulse, creativity and chance are all characteristics of this printing process which what makes monotypes so unique. June 8 - July 8, 2002 Donada Art Gallery, Malate Metro Manila, Philippines.
Reflections & Meditations
In this body of works I wish to convey a moment of unhurried, solitary reflection and pleasure. Offering a modest atmosphere of respite where an open, contemplative attitude may be rewarded. April 1-30, 2005, 26th Floor Rufino Tower, Makati City, Philippines
If it is a description you are looking for; Look not to the artist but to the deepest recesses of your heart and soul . . . to a point where your heart shall race upon the realization that such a place exists. No matter which way you examine it . . . it shall always be there. Starbucks Power Plant, Ground floor, Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City, Philippines November 3 - 30, 2004.

At times . . . one has to free himself from the confinement of filling it all up and going beyond the traditions of painting. Only then does his understanding of space develops, and then space follows an orderly sequence . . .
