"Hardwork is a form of meditation" - Chiqui Rodriguez
This artwork is based on Chiqui's 'Sudden Flight' series that explores deprivation and meditation of hardwork. Her unique approach to blending acrylic pigments on canvas creates gem-like surfaces that she calls it her “advection” technique in painting where it renders or moves substances of paint due to its bulk motion either via gravity or force. This iconic series features the artist's one of the most enduring personal triggers that dates back to 2012 when the works were originally inspired by her encounters with Overseas Filipino Workers.
