"Modified Baybayin" by Rea Lynn de Guzman

I write on visual art not just because I love art but because art-writing flexes a different muscle and I'm trying to get at something impossible to say (which is why I'm a poet in the first place). Visual art offers the convenience of being visible so that whatever I say can be checked against that visibility. AND I also write as much as possible (and it's impossible) from an unmediated point of view -- based solely on what I see versus what I hear, to paraphrase that saying about blind collectors (cough). Anyway, for my latest blather on various artworks by Jean VenguaRea Lynn de GuzmanMatt Manalo, and VC Igarta, you are invited HERE.
