Brazilian artist Kim Poor opens a major solo exhibition curated by Edward Lucie-Smith. It celebrates the diversity and richness of the myths and legends of the Amazonian Indians and is the result of over 15 years of research and inspiration. These are life stories that ascertain indigenous beliefs and explain the natural phenomena around them – the river, the flora and the fauna of the Amazonian Rainforest.
Poor’s paintings are created using her original technique of fusing layers of finely ground glass mixed with natural pigments onto steel plates. These are fired at very high temperatures up to forty times, producing images that are as luminous as butterfly wings. They will be exhibited alongside an installation named The River of Blood, representing 300 indigenous tribes in the form of inscribed arrows in flight.
