The Amazon is a woman, “says the artist Gino Ceccarelli.” And a woman is the most beautiful display of creation “. That’s why his paintings are always women who are merged with nature, relating to the many stories he heard as a child about the mythical goddesses, counted wise river towns, who met at sunset to watch the death of the sun between infinite forest. draws on ancient wisdom of founding myths of ancient explanations of the world, but also more contemporary material flows.

A powerful art
The discovery of the Amazon by Lima has revealed, among other things, a powerful art that draws on ancient wisdom of founding myths of ancient explanations of the world,
This exhibition, called “Amazonica”, brings together forty artists Amazon, from the masters of the sixties and seventies to young exponents of the latest generations.

The presence of the nature
According to the artist Gino Ceccarelli, who has supported in the conservatorship of the sample, if a large communicating vessel uniting all artists Amazon, this would be the natural landscape. “We all start from the strong presence of nature is so powerful and so strong that it may go unnoticed. Every day there are spectacular sunsets, the colors are so intense that even light gray are. The presence of the nature
has influenced each of us is a great starting point from which arise all other aspects. ”
The reinvention of myth
Then, the other major recurring theme in art Amazon is the recreation of myth, allegory, that magical and religious vision of the world that characterizes oral people connected with the environment around them. “The Amazon is the latest magic corner of the planet, hence different energies converge, very powerful magmas, which are expressed in shamanism, religion, faith healing, witchcraft, this is manifested in pictures. The heritage that we have all the Amazon is the oral literature. Since children have heard stories that reinvented with the passage of time, “says Ceccarelli.
