Aldrine Alarcon’s Veracious presents a multi-fragmented Mona Lisa, with repeated elements and thin layers of paint that imply stylings of abstract realism. As he breaks the image down into pieces, he deconstructs mythology about the painting and shows different planes that may be considered smaller, non-representational works. He also adds a native Filipino flower which is only found in the tropics, a gumamela, as a representation of beauty that wilts and fades in time.
