About the exhibition

 Boundless Thoughts, Infinite Courage dwells on ordinary and not-so ordinary people with heroic qualities such as the likes of the intrepid freedom fighter, the late President Corazon Aquino who served as a catalyst in moulding Philippine History. She’s metaphorically represented in “The Little Drummer Girl”, which is the artist’s core painting. Armed with an enormous desire for political reform, intense determination and tremendous courage, she led the bloodless People Power Revolution in 1986 and restored democracy in the country. For this reason that we admire and respect these present day heroes who pull disadvantaged people through their wretchedness and destitutions.

The artworks presented in the exhibition recognize and celebrate heroes’ lives, their positive contributions and the adversities they had successfully overcome. The symbolic representation of those unsung heroes who lead normal lives but have got insurmountable willpower to succeed and learn more about themselves are also the main focal points of the images on display. These so-called heroes demonstrated and confirmed to us that impossible were indeed possible. It’s through their selfless thinking and concerted effort that the quality of life improves. Their congregated actions with the infusion of technology are substantial ingredients to society’s development. The artist believes that a country advances as more and more new breed of heroes are created. Moreover, Jonathan Racimo further restates that there’s an untapped hero inside of us and we become heroes when we stop thinking less for ourselves and more for our country.
