~ ARTIST STATEMENT ~ 'Art presents itself with a certain kind of energy proceeding from our innermost being where logic nor intellect can be art. At the present time there are many people who believe themselves to be artists, just because they are able to paint on a piece of fabric. Art demands discipline and dedication. Art is the most beautiful way to express the talents that man has inherited; that is why it should not be taken as a means of satisfying the 'ego', nor a 'pose' in regard to society. Consequently Art should only have one purpose in mind: to create. ~ Ricardo Chávez-Méndez ~
