ana shariah salcedo on ang pula at ikaw:

red represents war on the philippine flag. sometimes it means warning. for others it spells anger and hate. for most it says love. for me, it is all of the above.

with the war just having gone on between iraq and the united states, the red flag is surely up for both countries. in my work, red is the dominating, if not the only color seen. red is the color of the single biomorphic shape that is splattered on the pictorial plane. because red is the anger everyone experienced towards the whole situation. red is the hate that most people have for saddam hussein. red is the fury i feel for the apathetic and indifferent. red is the utter sympathy that the philippine president feels towards the united states. red is the false love the people of saddam have for him, his regime and his country.

red. when one looks at my work, what does he see?
