Darrel Dan D. Lagasca’s paintings feature a multifarious layering of images and styles, symbolic of the multidimensional identity of our Filipino heritage. Darrel’s work exemplifies this intricacy through the connection between the East and West, the highs and lows of cultural perception, the old and young, the past and present.
Diverse and eclectic, his art challenges the viewer to consider current ideas and rethink the familiar. He gives voice to the varied and changing cultural landscape of identity, values, and beliefs of what is old and new. He explores ideas, concepts, questions, and practices that examine the past, describe the present, and imagine the future.
