Oscar Zalameda’s art is a deeply felt cubist abstraction of time and place.

The centerpoint of this piece, titled Paoay Church, is the San Agustin Church. Here, it assumes central significance as it exemplifies the timelessness of everyday life.

Paoay Church is one of the oldest in the Philippines having been completed in 1710. Its impressive pyramidlike structure stands out as a primary example of the Earthquake Baroque style of architecture character.
