Doktor Karayom: 3RDFLR
July 21 - August 12

Exhibition Statement:

Palapag, lugar na walang sariling hapag,
pero busog ang sikmura at kaluluwa kapag
nagkakagawa ng mga likhang hindi tumitigil sa pagdagdag
ng mga ideya at istoryang naiisip sa magdamag

Pumapalag sa hamon ng buhay, alam ang lalim ng hukay,
may sariling mundong pinupuntahan, kala mo nakatalampunay,
husay na natutunan ,sa kinapos na gamit ay nasanay
pinagkasya kung anong meron, na parang biglang sermon ni nanay

kumakalampag na bubungan, pula , puti, parang sabungan,
hindi makatsambang tinayaan, manalo, matalo ayus lang,
sanay namang mapagiwanan, ayaw ko lang makipagunahan,
sa mga nagmamadaling mali na ang pinupuntahan,

kapag akoy nababato, nakakatitig sa semento,
dikit dikit na yero, parang nitso sa sementeryo,
ito ay langit para sa akin, mukha lang syang impyerno,
dito nagsimulang bumuo ng sariling kong imperyo

Pagpag ng alikabok , patay na ipis at mga buhok,
tae ng mga dagang ,nagkukotkot sa sulok-sulok,
basurang di maitapon, may mga saging na bulok-bulok,
tubig ang lunas kapag may sakit at tabletas na lunok- lunok

kasing dami ng insekto ang ideya at konsepto,
sadyang natural ang pagbuo, hindi masyadong perpekto,
umukit at hulma sa maliit na kwarto
may isang pinto at daanang sukat sa isang tao,

binaluktot ang sarili para lang sa basahan ay magkasya,
magagamit ang lahat, dahil bawal ang mag aksaya,
tahanan ng mga inabandunang rebulto ng santo,
lugar na paanakan na umikot sa sintido,,

kwartong may tatlong ilaw na hindi napupundi,
imposibleng luminis ang mga nakatagong dumi,
tahanang pinagtaniman ng mga butil ng pangarap,
espiritu santo,semento at kahoy na sa akin ay yumakap..

About Doktor Karayom

“I am Doktor Karayom. I am the living fear of Russel Trinidad. I’ve taught him how to be brave, alert and inquisitive. I showed him how to be sensitive to things. I used the world of horror as an outlet for him to showcase his feeling. I’ve trained him to use the color red as a more effective tool for his story telling. I’ve instructed him to infuse his feelings in every line and every stroke, base everything on each pulse and emotion. Every new piece has no do over. I’ve taught him to sketch in paper, paint in canvas, and go out the streets and make something out of the walls because I don’t want to limit Russel’s talent and the thing he does. Together we met creative people and friends, ive givent him knowledge on carving and sculpting things. We converse a lot when he gets tired of this reality. I let him enter my domain to talk.

During morning, he is awake for his job as a graphic artist. Me on the other hand I wake at night to draw, to carve, and to sculpt and during these hours I watch over him as he dreams and aspire to reach his wish in life.

I’ve lent him my courage… and he in turn help me live in this reality.”
