Dahilan and Mallari’s works typify this deference to the flow of life and the vitality that springs from it when one is at ease with their existence. Their pieces feature alluring women framed by blossoming flowers and delicate fauna, an homage and surrender to all that’s true, good, and beautiful. As a whole, the exhibit is an apotheosis of aesthetic refinement and the quintessence of an awakened soul.
