“Acknowledging the achievements of our National Artist for Literature Cirilo Bautista
is a celebration of the highest potential of a fellow Filipino. I admired how Bautista realized this and raised himself to create his body of work. For my visuals, I extracted elements from the text, its meaning, and understanding what a zine could be.
My work constitutes symbols that best represent the narrative,
the act of withdrawal, and its emotional tone. I want the viewer to see my work more as more information than image in conveying the puzzling yet intriguing act
of reading Cirilo Bautista’s ‘Telex Moon.’”
