     The works exhibited here are some of the most important and substantial paintings I have done in my career, to which I have given utmost thought, concentration and care.

     "Toyland..." is a painting which confronts the present-day reality, and the global problem of violence, negative values, and gore in the commercial toys presently being dished out to children.

     "Window", though presented in abstraction, concerns
emphatic thoughts on the hastening destrucion of the environment.

      "Requiem..." is  a statement on the rapid turnover of Philippine landscapes to commercial endeavors and enterprises, while 

      "At the Serpent's..." was a personal reaction to the senseless onslaught on Philippine forests by illegal loggers which led to some of the most  devastating floods in the country in this century.
