The “Jeepney series” of artworks that helped launch the career of Rock Drilon (he trained under the tutelage of Jose Joya) first appeared in 1975. Since then, Rock has evolved as an artist, leading to his status as an uncompromising abstractionist. Every now and then, Drilon would revisit his Jeepneys -- such as this work from 1992 -- and incorporate them to his canvas, allowing the intersection of abstracts and the figurative in a most compelling piece.
