Image to Meaning: Essays on Philippine Art
A collection of critical essays on Philippine art spanning more than two decades from 1979 to 2001 by Alice Guillermo, this anthology situates art within the coordinates of society and history. The essays go beyond the traditional approach based on analysis of form and content, toward a semiotics-based method. This method creates a more intimate link between the material aspects of the work and its significations, one which seeks a more stable grounding other than the purely subjective and impressionistic.
