Last year of July, we had a group exhibition in Taipei, Taiwan. The theme was; connecting us (Filipinos) in Taiwan. So, this was my masterpiece.
Filipinos' food/drinks preferences were somehow influenced by different cultures. One example is the Bubble Tea which originated from Taiwan. We cannot deny the fact that there has been a bubble tea sensation in the Philippines since it was introduced. Bubble tea somehow provides comfort whenever we face stressful situations at work or in school; and since we spend our time mostly at work and in school, it has been part of our daily routine.
My painting depicts three areas in this material world: Different faces representing ANYONE in any part of the world; facial expressions signifying EMPTINESS; and bubble tea symbolizing SENSE ENJOYMENT.
Everyone is clouded by an illusion that enjoyment is the basis of happiness in this world. You try to satisfy every sense, yet you're still not satisfied and you still crave for something more. The fact that you're body/senses are satisfied but you still feel empty inside is a manifestation that the body is not you.
We are spirit in essence. We are spirit souls. Hence, the only thing that can satisfy us is our loving service to the Supreme.
