Mga Mumunting Multo
(ayon sa eksibisyong “Ghosts” ni Don Bryan Bunag)


Dito ko itutungkod
Ang kamalayan
Kung saan naghahati
Ang langit at kapatagan.

Matagal nang patay
Ang lungsod:
Sisilong muna
Sa salakot ng ulap

At doon tatanawin
Ang hangganan
Ng buhay
At uniberso.

Maski sa pusikit
Na dilim,
May sigalot
Ang mga bituin.

Saan ba
Nananahan
Ang Diyos
Na nakatikom ang bibig?

Pinapaluhod
Ng hangin
Ang mga ligaw
Na damo

Habang ako
Ay nakatanghod
Sa kalawakang
Sinusulsihan ng abo.


Carlomar Arcangel Daoana

Don Bryan Bunag

Don Bryan Bunag's works explore the concept of visualizing an internal landscape— an imagination of what his mind would look like if it were a place—as a representation of his state of mind.

For Bunag's upcoming exhibit, entitled Ghosts, he was trying to find a personal definition of a ghost. Since 2018, he has always gravitated toward using this word as the central idea of a specific show. But as someone who likes to plan, he did not rush it until he felt that his work and himself were aligned and ready to justify what he envisioned.

In his 8th solo exhibition, he intended to keep the works untitled. Giving an artwork a title might box it in terms of interpretation. Throughout his practice, he has always been combining traditional and modern methods in his art-making process, finding the balance between raw expression and deliberately implying a message, depicting simplicity yet suggesting complexity.
