Pamilya means "family" in Tagalog. This body of work is comprised of separate, self-contained portraits and images,
and yet is also a bigger narrative of the evolution and narrative of two diverse families forming a union. In personal terms,
these paintings express the subtle and powerful range of emotions inherent in the life of families: love, joy, anxiety,
stress, wonder, discovery, sadness, and fear. In social contexts, these pieces explore gender, racial, and cultural identities.
A crucial part of this work is the portrayal of life spans and the haunting passage of time, and the poignant effects
time has upon individual and family alike.
