FROM THE CURATOR
Maru Cantu is a bright painter, where the color pierces the gaze and is fixed on the retina of the spectator. He looks at the memory of the memory, and activates in us the sublime and the eternal. The dynamic shapes traverse the fabric in a vertigo of horizontal travel, floating over a horizon non-existent. In some of his works the forms are recognizable, but in others, one tries to find what the artist wants to represent if that were the artist's claim; It is true that Maru Cantu gives us clues about what some of his works intend to do, and have a certain character of illustration without demeriting neither one nor the other; here the two combine dialogue wonderfully.
FROM THE ARTIST
My abstract art shares through color and brush strokes my bold personality, experiences, vitality and everyday inspirations. I believe my work has the power to transform spaces, make them vibrate and come to life.
