This is also the Manila-based mixed-media artist’s first exhibition to focus solely on her collages. Gadia, who trained as a graphic designer, reassembles imagery from vintage magazines, advertisements, and pornography, all of which influence her output even when she’s not working in collage. “My materials are from secondhand bookshops and thrift stores. I select images that I like and see where it will go,” says Gadia. “My interest in graphic design helps me weight the quality of images and text that I use.” Striking a balance between tongue-in-cheek humor and cultural critique, her subject matter ranges from issues of cultural identity, imperialism, nationalism, sexuality, and ideals of beauty.
