I refer to the fragmented and hybrid nature of my experience as a Filipino immigrant. My work immerses the viewer in impressions of abundance and community through notions of Filipino food by using playful forms and color. I am also interested in the hybrid and multifarious origins of Filipino food as well as the interrelationships that occur within Filipino food structures and diaspora. I reflect on the fact that Philippine cuisine is hybrid and multilayered like many Filipino immigrants who have persevered and adapted to new lands.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
