Victorina Complex by gromyko Victorina Complex by gromyko
victorina Complex

ink on paper,9x12in

Donya Victorina is the famed character in Dr. Jose Rizal's novel, she epitomises the filipino who wants to dress up, act, and pretend to be a spaniard, during the spanish colonization era...

this is an allusion to the current state of the Philippines, we are Victorina's, we thought we are free and yet we are this old woman, dressed in european fashion, a Philippines that is old and bounded


Happy Independence Day filipinas, may your shackles be broken someday
