Catalogue Note

Every artist distorts or deforms nature. Nobody truly copies reality as we see it. Even the realist painters do not reproduce things exactly as they are. Realism is not the same thing as reality, it is simply another style. The purpose of my style is to exalt volumes, not only because that enlarges the area in which I can apply more color, but also because it conveys the sensuality, the exuberance, the profusions of the form that I am searching for.

Fernando Botero in Carlos Fuentes, Botero Women, New York, 2003, p. 218
