“The Art of You” is an upcoming solo exhibition in Torquai / U.K., showcaseing works by Felipe Chavez.
My works are predominately nudes and of my entire body, so when I created this one and only self-portrait it grew to be a very special piece to me. I want the viewer to see me and see my art, I have devoted my mind to understanding my craft and have experience so many things that I want to carry on telling. This portrait is to showcase my crave for art and my devotion to the aesthetic. Many people use art to express an opinion about the world or a political statement, however my works have always been about opening myself and exposing the vulnerable aspect of the form. This piece I believe will fit well in the notion of putting yourself as your Art, with the expression I want the public to see a thirst for needing it and how art to me is to breath. The craving of an obsession.
“The Art of You” is intended to be a richly personal exhibition. In hope to produce a show that is in part autobiographical, and where visitors are encouraged to focus on the lives behind the works. Through the collective display of personal items, the opportunity to draw interpretations of where shared aspects of creation lie, and where difference and similitude can be found in the homes of individual muses will be available, with scope to explore the raw and unrefined elements of creative process.
