Dark sky, deep sea

I’m a Filipino artist based in France.

I use photography to express and project my inner world. Largely self-taught, my approach is intuitive, spontaneous and experimental. My works are essentially stories – fictional but personal. They reflect my imagination, but also universal themes of the human being and our existentiality. My works are layered with abstraction, allowing viewers to imagine their own stories and make their own associations.

“As above, so below
as within, so without
Slivers of silver
murmurs from the deep
swirling, shimmering”.

Dark Sky Deep Sea reimagines the blue ocean as the black cosmos, where luminous plankton and sea creatures appear as otherworldly stars and beings. It follows a protagonist as she explores a deep abyss and encounters unpredictable creatures. It’s a personal projection as I search for answers deep within myself.
