HOW DOES AN ARTIST CONVEY HIS/HER MEANING
THROUGH MATETIALS AND TECHNIQUES?
How does an artist convey his/her meaning through materials and techniques? Artist
has their own mindsets, and way to convey a deeper meaning to his/her art.
For example, the Jose Rizal monument in our community (Philippines). It is made from
concrete so it look so strong and magnificent. It was like saying to us that Jose’s principles
and morals are indestructible, that even if death will try and stop him, he will still stand
and will never turn it’s back to it’s principles. Rizal did not fear the ten guns all pointed at
him, that makes me more amazed by him because we all can see that he died with a
filipino pride.
In the monument, Jose’s chin is resting on his hand, as if he was thinking deeply. Jose
is like thinking about things especially with our current situations. Yes, we already got our
freedom but in reality we really did not. We are still a prisoner with our doing, and because
of that we are still conquered by ourselves. Jose’s monument thinking gesture is still
thinking on how to make this nation freed from itself. And the last detail that I will share
to you, the molds that starts growing in the monument, the scraped paints, and the
blackening of some part of the monument, the signs of too exposure to sun and water,
signs of age. Yes, Jose Rizal and it’s heroism is old, yet still and will still surface in our
nation to make us realize how many bloods, sweats, and sacrifices were lost for us to
obtain our freedom. Not only Rizal is our hero, we have a lot of HERO in our nation that
wholeheartedly fight for us even if they sacrificed their own lives. But, sadly Philippines
became a country full of corruptions, crimes, inequalities, discriminations, criticisms,
poverties a lot of poor people still suffer while rich people is at it’s comfort, laughing
and enjoying. We all need to stop this! We are being disrespectful to our heroes sacrifices
and principles, we are setting aside their heroism. By the way, let’s go back to the art thing,
all of those things that I said above is the message that I received from the monument in
our community. They don’t have those word carved in the monument but I can hear those

things screaming and letting us know what it wants to convey, and the monument
