Guatemalan art makes its way to Rome to overcome negativity

ELSIE WUNDERLICH Painter "I come from Guatemala, which has an environment that's described as the eternal spring. We have a wonderful climate all year round, which brings constant inspiration.â? Her father was a farmer, so as a child, she had direct contact with nature. This actually triggered  her interest to study architecture, painting, drawing and art history. It also led her to draw sketches and take photographs of landscapes that caught her attention. For example, these paintings were inspired by her trips to northern Italy. ELSIE WUNDERLICH Painter "I'll visit one place and then months or even years later,  I see my sketches and it's as if the idea matures in my unconscious. Then I go back and develop the sketch again.â? The artist says she wants her art to be seen as a  poetry, where images and colors come together. Her paintings also has a social dimension, especially now as people deal with the economic crisis. ELSIE WUNDERLICH Painter "My message is always positive, with color, light. It's a message to overcome that negative feeling that can sometimes overwhelm us. It's a way to overcome that darkness, dissatisfaction or negativism.â? Her work has also been chosen by Italian wines Piccinini. One of her paintings is on the labels. It's just another way her work brings about that connection between nature and art. OFL/KLH AM - - PR
