These pieces were created for the exhibition entitled "SHHHHHHH" which theme focuses on one's deepest or darkest secrets.
"AUTHORITY OVER VIRTUE" is about how the artist glows and is at her best whenever her dominance triumphs over her virtues. Meanwhile, "VIRTUE OVER AUTHORITY" is about how the artist is at her most dangerous state whenever her virtues triumphs over her dominance. These two extremes reveal the artist's secret about how she functions properly living through and by her principles (which is governed by her dominance and love for power) rather than by living through and by her virtues. As the artist shares through her artwork; through virtue her vulnerability is posed lethal. However, through her authority she is benign.
As stated by the artist: "I am secretly a god not a goddess; in guise' of an omnificent being. Subliminal, as it may seem; but I am in my most ominous state when I am virtuous."

She studied BS Multimedia Arts and Sciences in Mapua Institute of Technology (now known as Mapua University). Angelica started training in 2016 and onwards. Angelica uses symbolisms, icons, colorful and playful images in her artworks to convey her emotions and conceal grim/sensitive stories behind every piece she makes, this approach makes her work appealing.
- As an artist, I tell stories in the most disturbingly whimsical way through a canvas; sugar coated in sprinkles, rainbows and cute characters which figures are inspired from gumdrops."
