“Solely Responsible” is the most recent of Yamel Molerio’s evolving works. His solo exhibition is a combination of art styles and includes various materials. Molerio draws his inspiration from Renaissance style as well as the simplicity of a child’s doodle. His style blends these disparate concepts into the development of each piece. Conceptually, his combination is a reflection of our cultures, customs, ideas, races and times. In particular, ‘appropriation’ plays a large role in Molerio’s creative process.
In his words:
As an artist, I am the creator of this visual world.
As the creator, there should be no rules because the creator makes his own rules.
I am solely responsible for creating this world. I am also solely responsible for mistakes and bad decisions that I’ve made in the past and for my success.
“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else. If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.”
