Paz Treuquil

Announcement    PAINTINGS OF THE MAPUCHE ARTIST PAZ TREUQUIL (www.paztreuquil.com)

Paz Treuquil was born in South America, in the territory that is now known as Chile. There she began to paint pictures in a totally intuitive and self-taught way, inspired by the precious symbolic universe, the rites and traditions of the indigenous culture to which she belongs.

For the Mapuches, the deep respect they feel for nature is inscribed in the meaning of their own name as a people, composed of the words Mapu (land) and Che (people), that is, people of the land. This cultural premise is present throughout the pictorial work of Paz, marked by a predominance of bright colors that further enhance the strength and power of human representations next to trees, vegetation or wild animals.

The dreamlike and symbolic landscape that most of her paintings present always has indigenous spirituality as a backdrop, reflecting sacred concepts directed at the hearts of the people of her own people, but that also manage to transmit to the uninitiated spectator emotions that reconnect them with the cultural universe of their most remote ancestors. Thus, there are constant images related to maternity and fertility, ancestral archetypes that express the concept of renewal and cyclic regeneration of life, since the first human cultures began to paint with red ochre on the walls of the paleolithic caves.

Paz Treuquil, an indigenous and feminine look that embraces, envelops and submerges us in the indomitable and wild world of the Ñuke Mapu (Mother Earth).
