Maria Thereza Negreiros: Offerings
Inspired by her childhood in Brazil’s tropical rainforest, Negreiros works with rich colors, deep foliage and mysterious habitat full of birds, animals and strange vegetation. Her personal experiences bring nature to life in monumental canvases handled with extraordinary virtuosity.
Her personal visual vocabulary speaks to the dangers of deforestation and the loss of beauty through colorful abstractions and shadowy imagery replete with references to the sensuous forms of mossy riverbanks and steaming jungle heat, and threatened by death from man and nature herself. Maria Thereza Negreiros was born in Brazil and lives in Cali, Colombia.
