(Miami) Beyond Innocence at Miguel Rodez Art Projects


I am sorry that this is not your typical sales pitch: Sergio Chavez does not try to impress one with astute use of materials. He is not adept at creating subtle gradient color shifts. No. He is not a master draftsman either. Instead, Sergio Chavez is a master of enchantment. Those who focus only on academic refinement may be repulsed by his work. Some may say that their little daughter can do this. The fact is no one's little daughter can do or actually does this. He does! There is a lot more going on than meets the eye. Although his style may render him vulnerable to harsh criticism from the academic crowd, he consistently and incessantly puts out work that, either makes us think or that delights us with his unique provocative charm. He uses humor, satire and humility to hook us in and then make us think before we even realize what just happened. This devotion to visually communicate what comes from his soul, in a poetic, child-like and disarming style, regardless of what critics may think, is what being an artist is all about. Sixty-one of his pieces will be on view and available at extremely reasonable prices at Miguel Rodez Art Projects. Please help me to support the work of fine artist Sergio Chavez on Saturday, January 17, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. (Miguel Rodez)
