Tarsila do Amaral
I like Tarsila do Amaral´s paintings very much. She took part in Modernism Movement in Brazil, in 20`s. Even today her work is remarkable. Nature and Humanity are together in her work: foot, land, coconut trees in the city, green, sky, cities, more green. In São Paulo we have "few green", just in parks and some neighbourhoods. That is why people are desperate to set out when there is a long holiday. Even a trip to the mountains or to the beach make us over the moon, more well-balanced and self-centred. I notice this in all friends, colleagues and acquaintances. It seems to me that we forget that nature must be part of our lives. Why not more green? Maybe, if we had much more trees in São Paulo city, the rivers wouldn´t overflow after a-forty-minute-rain and there wouldn´t be so much caos at traffic time in summer (almost every day). Green is wanted here, peace of mind, deep relaxation, just green.
