Introduction



Welcome to my Exhibition!

"Amazonia por la vida" is an art project of mine as support for Amazonia. I had ended my project prematurely in 2019 because of the more and more spreading burning rainforest in the Amazon region.

In my works I try to express the beauty and fragility of Amazonia, its biodiversity, its rivers, rainforests, plants , blossoms, animals, indigenous peoples, the guardians of Amazonia,
along with the pollution and contamination of water and earth, acts of arson, violence, the continuing brutal destruction of nature and the habitat, and the living conditions of the indigenous peoples, animals and the rainforest.

During my research I had learned more and more of Amazonia and had included additional issues in my concept. But I had to shorten the concept of my project in the last years several times.
Amazonia is so complex so unique in its biodiversity, that I cannot paint all animals, plants, and cannot create paintings to everything what has become close and important to me. 
But I will continue to create paintings in support of Amazonia.

My works shall speak for all those who can not speak and for those who are not heard, for the present and for the future of the indigenous tribes and their children of Amazonia, for all life in this beautiful part of Mother Earth.

Protecting the Amazon is essential. Not just because of its biodiversity. The rainforest has the greatest impact on the global climate and thus on all life on earth. The indigenous peoples live in harmony with nature. They are the best guardians of the rainforest and water. I ask you to support them and to support, defend, protect them against all hostility and violent attacks. - however you are able to do so.
We all need the rainforest, the green lung of planet Earth. For our life and for the life of our future generations!

My target was and still is to present my project work in exhibitions, as support for Amazonia. It would be great to show the exhibitions at places where many people can see it, seven days a week, without paying an entrance fee.
But the coronovirus came in-between.

Now you can stay in dialogue with my works here as often as you want and whenever.

I wish you an enjoyable encounter with my work.

Thanks

First of all I want to thank two people for their generosity and appreciation. Birgitt and Klaus B., you made it possible for me to set up my studio. You gave me a home for many years and a place where I could work optimal - and the last seven years of this time on my Amazonia project. I am grateful for your gorgeous support! Thank you both so much!

Dear Günther, I am deeply grateful for all your great, wonderful support, for your appreciation and for your generosity! Thank you so much, that you had enabled me for decades, to buy my favorite colors and special papers to affordable prices. You always gave me the best advice with your professional knowledge. Without "your" colors I couldn't have painted most of my pictures like this! Especially with my Amazon project. "Your" colors gave me unexpected, diverse possibilities to express myself.
I had planned to show my "Amazonia por la vida" exhibition in Mannheim first. How I would like to have welcomed you and your wife Monika at the vernissage there! But it should not be, covid19 prevented it. And before I could publish my pictures online, I had to learn that you had passed away. You were always encouraging, you never gave up in your life. You were a wonderful human being. I thank you for all our encounters. Rest in peace!


My Thanks go to my dear friends, for your great appreciation of my work and for supporting my Amazonia-paintings online, since I published the first ones in 2012. Furthermore I like to thank you for your loyalty, for all our dialogues, for your words and opinions. It means very much to me. 
Muito obrigado Ana, Thank you so much Mike, Muito obrigado Angela, Thank you so much Sofia, Merci beaucoup Isabella, Thank you so much Bianca, Muchas gracias Yolima, Thank you so much Deeyah, Shukran jazeelin Lina, Shukran jazeelin Liliane, Shukran jazeelin Noha, Pilamaya Vivian, Merci beaucoup Madeleine, Merci beaucoup Claire, Shukran jazeelin Zeinobia, Tausend Dank Monja, Thank you so much Lainy, Shukran jazeelin Rasha, Muchas gracias Maria Louisa, Thank you so much Jeannie, Shukran jazeelin Yara, Shukran jazeelin Nadia, Muito obrigado Mariana!

Shukran jazeelin my dear Lina! Despite your disease you took time, even from hospital, to speak to me. Your words encouraged me always. You lived it: never to give up!!! I am deeply grateful for your appreciation of my Amazonia project and my artwork. You passed away so early, but you live on in our memory and in our heart! Rest in peace!

Thank you so much dear Terry, Nikolia, Lainy, Corinne, Monja, Rasha, Harald, Mona and Rita, for always being interested in my project work, for your appreciation, for your opinions, suggestions, informations, for all your manifolded great support!

Merci beaucoup cher Isabella, for your appreciation and your support of my Amazonia project, for your words of encouragement and for inspiring my work!

Thank you so much my dear Bianca, for your appreciation of my paintings. Your opinions and supporting words mean much to me. You gave me encouragement and hope also in difficult times. You inspired my paintings in different ways! Thank you so much!

Muchas gracias mi querida Yolima for your beautiful and inspiring photographs from your blooming garden and from Venezuela, for your great interest in my paintings, for your loyalty, for your permanent great support and for your great appreciation, for inspiring my work!

Obrigado muito my wonderful and beloved Ana! You are always interested in my artwork and in my project work, you supported me with research, provided me with photos and informations about Amazonia, You told me about your childhood at the Rio Amazonas, about the mangueiras and the Baia de Guajará and so much more ... I am deeply grateful to you for keeping me inspired, for your encouragement, for all your great support and for let me smile even in hard times, for all our dialogues, for your loyalty and for loving my paintings!


Without you all, my dear friends, my project would not be what it has become!
I am deeply grateful to you all.
I bow to you all, thank you so much everyone!


Much Love to you all! Stay healthy and safe!!

Pit
