Jose John Santos III (b.1970)

Riseta ni Doc

2011

Mixed on media

30.5 x 23 cm (12 x 9 in)

Quick Overview

Acclaimed for his cryptic symbolism stimulating a reexamination of histories, Jose John Santos III presents a clenched fist, a fragment of a letter stamp, and the iconic signature of National Hero Jose Rizal like pieces of a puzzle. Riseta ni Doc refers to Rizal’s profession as an ophthalmologist. The worn and faded quality of what appears to be a letter envelope invites audiences to look back at the traces left by this historical figure. Veering from revealing the face of the National Hero, Santos challenges viewers to understand him with fresh eyes distanced from the anecdotal, fabled character he is often portrayed as.
