Lisa Brunetti – A Journey (15/11/2018 – 15/01/2019)

Museo Portoviejo – Portoviejo Ecuador (Manabi Province)

Lisa shares her profound connection with the natural world through writings and water-media paintings of flora and fauna. She usually works in watercolor for small studies and switches to acrylics for larger works.

Concerned with the rapid deforestation in Ecuador’s provice of Manabi, she tries – when possible – to call attention to our planet’s failing health. The landscape has been greatly altered in the ten years she has lived there, and losing the canopy also affects the climate and a rapid decline of species.

The upcoming exposition, which opens at Museo Portoviejo/ Manabi Province/Ecuador on November 15, 2018, will showcase many Ecuadorian species. Ongoing studies of pre-Colombian artifacts will also be included. These studies will allow the viewer an ‘up-close’ inspection of some of her favorite birds, flowers – and even artifacts, many from the Bahia and Jama Coaque cultures.  At times the paintings have a serious tone; others reflect a touch of whimsy.

A third section of this Journey through Lisa’s life in Manabi will feature an eclectic series. Moving from Jama to Poza Honda/Santa Ana after the earthquake, she converted a few relics from her home into unique interior items; some of these will be on exhibit as well!
