"Art is the poetry of nature. Art shows the human in a state of elevation, where its potential rises and spreads through its creations, something as amazing as nature itself".
Chantal Meza is a self-taught abstract artist. In a world dominated by science and technology, she immerses herself in the abstraction of life, a human world where she can create from sensory forms that are not reduced to technicalities or are governed by the encounter with 'the truth'. In her artistic act, she inquires and hangs around the socio-political world through the classical art form of painting and sculpting, and the ‘Abstract’ ancient form of expression. Chantal uses abstraction to expand the limits of constructed knowledge seeking to challenge our understanding of what art means in the Third Millennium.
