As part of The War Show: Tactics
Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines
A group art exhibition in which pairs of artists are set one against another in artistic combat. Artists from America were paired with artists from the Philippines, and each pair discussed possible strategies for artistic engagement through “battle”.
Paired with artist Alvin Zafra, we chose to trade the materials we brought to make our work. Each using half of the dozen sheets of paper and sandpaper. We also chose to have a battle theme and agreed on jellyfish; my interest from a science story I recently read and Alvin’s recent encounters while surfing. My work utilized the monster battle card vernacular like Pokemon or Magic cards as a way for fighting.
Pencil on paper and sandpaper. 54″ x 24″
