“Art is the best way I communicate with the world. Through my art, I express my feelings and thoughts with abandon. In my studio, I immerse myself in experimentation and research. I am very proud of my cultural heritage, both as a Filipino and as an Asian, and have, thus, been searching for other artistic methods and techniques endemic to my cultural roots. My vision is to develop a personal artistic style that reflects my cultural heritage — one that is free from convention and current thought. I believe that art and self-expression should be free and liberating. When it comes to my compositions, I often like to depict the beauty of life and of nature, the joy of living, and what it means to be human. I like to paint the simple, ordinary scenes that we take for granted and yet mean so much. I want to remind people that seemingly ordinary instances, when put together, make life wonderful and worth living.”Bettina Silverio, artist
