Exegesis refers to the method of interpreting texts in order to extract its essential message or information. Using this allegory, noted visual artist Jeho Bitancor similarly seeks to unveil, through the use of forceful imagery, truths of our lives that are nonetheless hidden from us. The "text" the artist investigates is ideology, so finely interwoven within contemporary life that we cannot detect its presence, unless denounced. this is the kind of denouncement that Bitancor has consistently  practiced since his early days as activist.

The extraction of truth, becomes for Bitancor an Aletheia, Greek work for truth-as-unveiling, thus, a kind of iconoclasm, a stripping away of pretensions - to - power and unmasking of the objectionable marginalizing of peoples.

Bitancor confronts, although subtly, the silent pain of the silent majority, as they are consumed by the capitalist ideology and wasted by politics of greed and cultures of the Ubermensch. He reveals the constraints falsely seen as niches of comfort in Kanlungan; even as he visualizes the unmitigated divide between ideologies of progressive and oppresive by burning idea - ladders between them - an anathema to armchair (or bath tub) activism.

The artist leads us to question the saccharine promise of free market rule. Inviting us to think if we are not flies, greedy for honey are inevitable trapped in its viscosity.

Bitancor studied art at the UP. He has exhibited both here and abroad.
