Modernong Aliping (Modern Slave)

A work of art is a scream of freedom (Christo). And according to Aristotle, the aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

That's why the visual art that I chose was "Modernong Alipin" by Al Baleda. At first, you will be able to see that the artwork portrays the enslavement of OFWs.

They have been bearing the global crisis of our country for a long period of time. But when you stare deeply, you will actually see the strong personality of a Filipino not only on these hard times that was brought by this pandemic, but for their whole life of sacrificing for their family and for our country. They remain steadfast even when they have problems and trials in life. This personality represents

Filipinos as they continue to fight and live in this difficult situation.

In Al Baleda's artwork "Modernong Alipin", the assumption was art as an expression. The artist expresses the content or subject clearly where OFW's have been bearing the global crisis. The artwork also shows emotions, it releases a strong feeling of tiredness or sadness. The form of art or art form used was visual art where the subject of the art is being communicated to the audience through an application of color on a flat surface. The artwork's function was personal because it represents artist's self-expression, possibly based on his experience or what he have seen, and it is also social because it serves as a medium to show to people or to a group of people of what the content is trying to portray. The content was factual because the artwork shows a very clear and complete meaning.

"The artwork has a social relevance because it reflects one of the social issues where OFW's became modern slave. "

Overall, any form of art can serve as a medium of every artist to express their emotion, awareness, thoughts and improvement. Likewise, art can teach us about our surroundings and how each of us fits in the scheme of things. It allows us to imagine, create and reflect our ideas in a visual representation of our world. Art represents culture and traditions and also act as a therapy that aims to manage behaviors, process of feelings, reduce stress and anxiety, and increase self-esteem.

This is a perfect definition of a picture that says it all. Yet, there are still many of the relatives of each overseas filipino worker who take things for granted as if the money is acquired in a snap of a finger. 😔💔

There's nothing simple in this word we need to take all risk and sacrifice. Life of our OFW heroes isn't been become easy. How I dreamed on one snap money.

I agree with most of the things that you've said but I have to highlight the part where you claimed that art is not just a form expression, it is also a teacher that makes us feel of what is truly happening around us.

Nice work!
