Cantu's full artist statement is available at the Eclectic Expressions gallery website but in reference to this exhibition, Cantu says:

"...sculptural painting abstractions reference non-existent models rather than realistic situations. They are inspired by various disparate elements, some of which are: the strong interchanges between Texan and Mexican cultures; the multi-dimensional mysterious nature of reality; and barbacoa tacos."
