“Ang Alamat ng mga Unang Anghel”
Size: 14 x 18 inches
Medium: Watercolor and Acrylic on Paper
Ang tula at biswal na aking nilikha ay para sa mga bata upang mamulat ang kanilang mga mata at kanilang mabigyang halaga na ang pagdating ni Magellan sa Pilipinas ay may basbas ng Poong Maykapal. Ito ang naging daan upang makilala ng mga Pilipino si Jesus na siyang naging sanhi upang ang Pilipinas ay maging Kristiyanong bansa. Ang mga bata ay parang mga anghel na laging masaya at mausisa, palaging may mga nais mabatid, maranasan, mahawakan, at makita. Sila rin ay laging handang tumulong at gumawa ng kabutihan lalo na kung ang kanilang kaisipan ay puno ng sari-saring kwento na may bida, kababalaghan at aral – mga bagay na ang mga magulang ang nakakatanda ang siyang makakapagbigay.
Corinne Juliano-Salazar is a student from the College of Fine Arts, UP Diliman, Majoring in Painting. Her interest in art began before school age – where she would endlessly collect pebbles, sea shells, flowers, seeds, anything with form, color, and texture that would fit into her small hands, enough to make a ‘world’ that only she could understand. Colored clays and crayons were her best buddies; and her collection of ‘stampitas’ was her dearest treasure.
A licensed Nurse who also holds a degree in Civil Engineering, her desire to pursue art is unstoppable – having her first Watercolor Art Workshop in UP Diliman in 2002. Art for her is like a pure honey, once you taste it you want to drink it… it’s addicting. She had a number of art mentors, and Mr. Fernando Sena was one of them.
Raised in Maguindanao, particularly in the City of Cotabato and the coastal towns of Kalamansig and Lebak, Sultan Kudarat – her immersion to our diverse Filipino culture immensely enriched her experiences and left indelible imprints in her memory where true life and communal harmony exist.
