Ricardo Cruz Fuentes
In my artworks I seek to project my sarcastic and simplistic humor sense. Seeking with my compositions make the spectator becomes involved by expressions of everyday moments, seasoned with this grace that causes us the absurdity and sometimes, contradictory facets of the human being.
Really I not seek philosophize about deep or controversial issues; I basically focus to capture those moments that give a special “seasoning” to life through actions, ideas and the phrases that define to people.
Although I not seek visual realism in my artwork, if I seek they are “readable” and easy interpret for the viewer.
Today and for some time, I seek in as far as possible, to put aside the brush to apply the paint directly with my fingers, slowly changing detail for expression and color, plus this allows me better painting the ideas and images in my head, as well the process becomes more fun.
In words of Gustave Flaubert: “I devote to art because enjoy me, but I don’t have faith in the beauty”
