Tempering this flurry of abstract and surreal images is Ignacio’s Platera. In this solo exhibit, Ignacio deviates from her usual medium; in lieu of paper, ceramics from Hey Kessy serve as the canvas and an extension of her domestic pursuits—“something I’ve been enjoying for the past year,” she quips. As with her paintings and illustrations of self-possessed women, this choice in fragile material conceals something more potent: “challenging the traditional notion that Filipinas should be dainty, neat, and ‘di makabasag-pinggan’ to be considered acceptable in this society.” After all, Soleil’s brand of art is, in itself, a testament to the truth: that the dainty need not be fragile.
