From Exhibiting You:
Observar la obra de Virginia Chévez es trascender las fronteras del óleo y del lienzo para sumergirse en un mundo de total paz, de absoluto silencio, donde el alma se descubre a sí misma gozando el paisaje interior. Colores que se entrelazan en completa armonía con el sonido del universo, matices que nos envuelven en un eterno abrazo para transportarnos al hogar fundamental del ser. Contemplación en soledad que acoge y abriga; meditación hecha pintura que invita a olvidarse en la existencia y entregarse ante la inmensidad del universo.
--Daniela Castillejos Chévez
