Liwanag, an exhibition of works by artist Aze Ong, opened on May 22 at the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Gallery with a fashion show of her creations. The exhibit runs until June 22.
Ong’s art are wearable crochets like handmade jewelry, bags, necklaces and clothes.
“I believe that art and life flow together. The Liwanag exhibits are realization through experiences which is a recurring theme. I share liwanag [light]through my art,” Ong said.
Liwanag is Ong’s way of “expressing enlightenment, sharing, healing and appreciation of beauty.” The opening of the exhibit came with a fashion show with 11 models flaunting 32 looks made out of Ong’s crochets. The show was ended with Ong performing a dance number.
