  9. 10. DING ROCES FROM SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA His visions, expressed in song or painted image, come straight from the heart. Heber Bartolome is a folk poet whose work does not attract the attention of the high priests in the temples of today's art world. He is spokesman for the common man, singing out in simple language, pain, anger, hope, sometimes even joy. Even if you take away the angry political activist in him, so basic to his self-expression, there is still much to celebrate about humanity in his music and his paintings. Heber best describes what makes him tick with these lines: &quot;Di ko kailangan magpa-guapo Upang hangaan. pansinin ng tao Ang kailangan ko'y ang maging totoo Awitin ang dapat sa panahong ito.&quot; As a writer-painter who has always held uppermost the value of being authentic and telling it like it is, I salute Heber, whose art has always remained &quot;totoo&quot;.   Who was the poet who said: &quot;To thine own self be true, you cannot then be false to any man&quot;?   Mabuhay si Heber. ALFREDO ROCES [email_address]   Art Book Author and Publisher Minsan ay dinalaw namin ni Ding Roces sa Imus, Cavite ang pintor na si Glenn Bautista. Habang nagpapahingalay ako sa may sanga ng puno ng mangga, iginuhit pala ako ni Ding. Ginawan ko naman ito ng tula at ginamit kong background ang kanyang painting na Fraser Island. Ginawa ko ito sa photoshop kasama ang isang dingo na naglalakad sa dalampasigan at isang asong tila nagpi- piano.Ang mga larawang ito ay bahagi ng aming interaksyon sa egroup na si Ding rin ang lumikha, ang BANGGAAN.

  17. 18. NATIONAL ARTIST VIRGILIO ALMARIO reading his poem entitled SAMPAYAN referring to Heber’s painting SINAMPAY. at hindi ito dumadaing lumundo man ang dibdib sa dinadalang bigat. Hihingi ito ng tukod at taimtim na susubaybay sa maghapong salamangka ng simoy at silahis. Umaalis nang walang-paalam pagdadapithapon ang maninipis na blusa’t kamisadentro at wala itong pakialam; may dapat pang bantayan magdamag na mababagal na kumot at mahihinahong pantalon laban sa biglang ulan at malilikot na kamay. Iniingatan nito ang maselang seda ngunit di pinangingimian ang may-sulsing korto o masipag na katsa. Sa mata ng sampayan: Ang lahat ng tela ay pantay-pantay at may karapatang hindi malaglag sa lupa o maihian ng walang-modong aso. Nagseselos naman ito kapag tinambakan lamang ng basahan samantalang ibinabayad ng makina ang terno’t pambulwagan; natutuwa kapag nilalaro ang mga puting lampin SAMPAYAN ni RIO ALMA   May sariling damdamin ang sampayan. Kung gabi, Tila hibla ito ng metalikong gagamba, nangungulila at ibig gawin ang sarili na isang antena sa paghahanap ng kausap na bituin. May araw din kapag tinatamad kahit kalabaw sa kural, tila dinaglat itong hininga ng buhay, nakabayubay sa matatalas na bitag ng simoy at silahis, ngunit di pansin ang bulong at yapos ng matiyagang tutubi. Sa ganitong araw ng pamamahinga isinusulat nito sa hangin ang makamandag na ugat na kalawang. Ngunit sa araw ng gawain at paglilingkod, tila linya ito ng iba’t ibang ugali, pandama’t panlasa, kahit di hari ni pari, bahaghari ng bestida’t palda, tanghalan ng bagong-sabon at giniginaw na damit at kortina, maginhawang panti’t sando, pribadong tuwalya’t kumot, at nababalisa kapag matagal nawala o naglayas ang pantalon at kamiseta. Malihim din ang sampayan: Nabubuwisit ito sa madaliang paglalaba ng malibag na kuwelyo panyolitong masangsang o panloob na may marka; at hiyang-hiya ito kapag itinanghal sa labas ng bintana, sinabitan ng isang bimpo o bra, at pinanood ng mga bastos na istambay.
  18. 19. PETE LACABA <ul><li>Celina Cristobal reading </li></ul><ul><li>Pete Lacaba’s SAMPAYAN </li></ul>SAMPAYAN   Masdan itong sampayan. Hindi hari, hindi pari, ang nagmamay-ari sa bahaging ito ng mundo. Dugo, luha, pawis ay malapot na putik sa ibang bahagi ng mundo. Daga, ipis, lamok, limatik: putik! putik! putik! sa ibang bahagi ng mundo. Pero konting sabon, konting tubig, init ng araw at halik ng hangin ay papawi ng putik kahit sa isang saglit. At sa isang saglit na iyon, malinis, mabango, makulay ang buhay sa isang bahagi ng mundo, dito, sa sampayang ito, kahit na ang nagmamay-ari ay hindi pari, hindi hari.   Jose F. Lacaba

  22. 24. <ul><li>Heber, One painting stood out for me. I certainly can't claim to have a massive knowledge of the current political state of your country, but I know a small bit of the Marcos history, the Leftist revolt and the current protestations of 'democratic freedom' within Aroyo's craven pro Bush agenda.  (Two presidents who stole elections will obviously like each other!!) I wrote this. ARESTADO....! FOR HEBER, 7 APRIL 2006 </li></ul><ul><li>Calm down. We know what you're thinking. But it was different then. We don't do things like that any more - we're a democracy! We have elections! Where are we going? Not very far. Just a little free taxi ride then we'll take you home. Drop you outside your own front door. But now - listen to us. </li></ul>ATTILA THE STOCKBROKER London Welcome to the War On Terror. Gloria and George's War On Terror. You're either with us or against us. Yes, we know what you'll say - we've heard it before. You're an artist. You're not involved in politics. Really? We saw you at that rally. You cheered when they said that the President stole the election. You cheered when they said that she is just a US puppet, no better than the others. You filthy, lying pig. Someone in your privileged position should know better. We saw you marching with the leftists. We were watching you. It's not like the old days. There won't be any beatings, any electric shocks. We don't do that these days: We just want you to know that you must choose. This is the War On Terror. You're either with us or against us. That's all. Now get out of the car. Go home. Live your life. Don't make us come looking for you again.
  23. 25. PEPE SMITH On the spot, Pepe Smith read with melody and guitar chords a poem written by a British punk-poet-musician Attila The Stockbroker entitled ARESTADO. Attila wrote and emailed the poem as an interaction to Heber’s painting entitled BIHAG.

VIM NADERA PERFORMANCE ARTIST <ul><li>Performing his own poem re </li></ul><ul><li>Heber’s painting Pinay 2006. </li></ul>MALAKI RING BAHAGDAN ANG LAMANG NG TIMBANG (Pagkatapos ng Filipina ni Heber Bartolome)   Malaki ring bahagdan ang lamang ng timbang Ng aking utak kaysa iyo, aking mahal.   Lamang din ako, sa paramihan ng dugo, Bagamat kapuwa tayo putok sa buho.   Mas matangkad ako, mas magaspang kumilos, Mas mahahaba ang biyas, at mas mabuhok.   Ako ang kinilalang larawan ng dunong Sapagkat ang wala ka, ako ang mayroon.   Marahan kong kinain ang aking salita Nang aking marinig ang bunga ng bunganga.   Ikaw ang tarangkahan ng demonyo? Nasa pagitan ka ba ng hayop at tao?   Lalake ka rin bang isinilang nang mali? O isa kang tagapagparami ng lahi?   Habang tinatanong ko ang aking sarili, “ Ako ay ikaw!” ang sa akin mo sinabi.   Tatlong katagang ito ang sagot sa lahat Ng dilim na sa dulo -- ikaw ang liwanag! AN IMMENSE DIFFERENCE IS THE POWER (After Heber Bartolome’s Filipina)   An immense difference is the power Of my brain compared to yours, my dear.   I am also better, for I have more blood, Although we are of the same substance.   I am taller, of rougher manner, My limbs are longer, and much hairier.   They look on me as perfection For what you do not have, I have.   But slowly, these words I took back For I realized how they must sound.   Are you the Devil’s gate incarnate? Are you neither beast nor human?     Are you man mistakenly born a woman? Or are you one who will spread our numbers?   And while I ask myself these, “ I am you,” to me you said.   These three words are the answer to all The darkness whose light at the end – is you!

  28. 30. From Leuven, Belgium Heber's music and biting lyrics captured the mood of his generation: The 70s and 80s were decades of national deliberation, rebellion, and self-discovery. With Macbethian lyricism, Heber explicitly posed fundamental questions about Philippine culture to the beat of Pinoy rock and rhythm. A generous dose of “Kalamansi Sa Sugat” was not meant to add insult to injury to the pathetic colonial residues of the jeprox generation; it was a means of stimulating a musical catharsis. Heber is a rebel with a cause, the giant of Pinoy protest songs, an authentic national artist of the highest caliber and integrity.   DR. VICTOR BRIAS PhD in Philosophy, A former and fellow professor of Heber in De La Salle University. If his artistry reverberates in the field of music, it has been subversively mute in other realms. For over three decades, Heber has transferred his ideas to canvas from his unique perspective. With each stroke of the brush, with each opus, Heber’s seems to say: “I am here and you are there, reality lies in between.” Heber does not paint a subject as he sees it; he paints it as it reveals itself to him. His graphic protest lies in defying matter and capturing the aura, the wild essence, and temporal flux of each subject. With Heber there is no such thing as “still life” … everything is in living motion, particles and waves disguise their being in a dance of light and colors. Heber’s art brings one to the realization that life and reality transcend the dimensions of physics, and that art itself is a facet of life’s essential being. Through his paintings, Heber has reached a higher, more sublime, but implicit form of rebellious expression. On canvas he protests against the dull and obvious. Even a shirt on a clothesline is beautiful, interesting, and worthy of attention… as is Nena, the prostitute, with her short skirt and skinny legs. But what do we make of these subjects? What is Heber insinuating? Perhaps the answer lies in what Heber does not paint, namely: Kings, Generals, Presidents, Castles or Palaces … or any of the so called “great subjects”. Heber looks at life from the margins, because it is there where life starts and stops. The simple things, the simple people are not so simple at all. It is they who make history. Heber protests against “the grandiose” and leads us towards an appreciation of the integral beauty and truth of mundane reality. Heber is the Pinoy protest painter of our time, but an artist for all, and all time. FILIPINO ARTIST OF HIGHEST CALIBER AND INTEGRITY

Sana'y sala-salang retaso ang puso't diwa ng madla, kawit-bisig sa makabansang adhika. Retaso Pinagtagpi-tagpi ni Eduard Labadia ng Banggaan e-group Binangga ng konti ni Heber    Ako ay natutuliro Gunita ay lumalabo Kahit na nga kapiraso Wala akong nabubuo   Pinagtagping kabuuan Nitong aking nakaraan Di ko na maaapuhap Ang nabuwag na pangarap   Panaplot na mga hibla Ng sugatang kaluluwa Nakabukang mga sugat Panaplot ko ay nawarat   Sa’n ba kayo patutungo? Salisi kong mga hakbang Tila habang lumalaon Ako'y paikot-ikot lang!   Reta-retasong kalas-kalas Kelan pa ba bubuklurin? Natitirang kalayaa'y Hwag na nating ipasupil! RETASO Ni Claro Cortes IV telang pirapiraso presyo’y dalawa singko asul, pula at abo pag nabuo’y retaso.

Kahit saulado. Panahon ang gumawa nito — mga reta-retaso ng oras na pinapahid sa duguang bibig ng ibig ko at ibig mo.   Ngayo’y magkahiwalay tayo tulad ng mga pilak sa mangasul-ngasul na arkipelago.   Pakyawin mo man o kunin ng paiyakan ay pare-pareho pa rin tayong mga bahagi ng kaisa-isang hiwaga.   Mga putol-putol, mga ulol, sa kislap at kisapmata’y gahol. Mga punit-punit na kamunduhan — tila pa-solo-solo pero pala’y sabay-sabay sa sampayan ay pa-otso-otso. Kasi’y iisang balot ng tao.    — Krip Yuson   PANDY AVIADO Reading Krip’s poem RETA-RETASO
  32. 34. TEO ANTONIO APAT NA TULA RETASO Sala-salang retaso,iba't ibang kulay, sala-salang talinghaga ng buhay. Sana'y sala-salang retaso ang puso't diwa ng madla, kawit-bisig sa makabansang adhika.    ARESTADO Di lahat ng arestado'y may kasalanan maaaring sila'y napagkamalan. Ang masakit kapag tinamnan ng ebidens'yang di nila alam.   SINAMPAY Mula sa pagod,pawis ng naglaba ang isinampay mula sa labada. Maaaring damit ng lolo at lola, nagtratrabahong ina at ama, estudyante't istambay sa eskinita.   Mahalagang malinis ang damit pero, mas mahalagang ang kalooba'y malinis.   ANG PINAY Nakakalat sa bawat panig ng mundo, makabagong alipin ang ibinansag sa iyo. Gusto mo lamang ang pamilya'y isalba, maiahon sa lumulubog na ekonomiya. Dahil maraming pinunong nilimas ang yaman ng bansa para sa lahat.                           TEO  T.

What keeps us dumb? When will we pull The wool away from our eyes and see The hand that rules our choices?   — I march on the street with a clear conscience.   How do we serve, what do we care About that vague notion called Bayan, When we fuss over our grass and garden And ignore the garbage beyond our front yard?   — I stay at home with a clear conscience.   Friend, bother, sister, senator, whatever: When will you and I stop having clear consciences And think it was maybe clear consciences Put clowns and despots in Malacañang?     Marne L.
