The four paintings can combine to form one vast cloud forest landscape painting. This was exhibited on the floor at Bergamot Station Arts Center and visitors found themselves walking over hundreds of exotic, flowering plants while searching for the source of the river.

One January we drove a jeep as far as we could up the volcano. We put on plastic suits and rubber boots and climbed the rest of the way through a cloud forest.

“In Colombia, we would wake each day at 5am and have coffee on our balcony, gazing at the rainforest which extended all around us. At that early hour one could see a snow-covered volcano in the distance, protruding from the canopy.

Eventually we reached a plateau just below the crater. There we found a source of the Amazon River. It was summer and all the plants were flowering. Using ropes and tent pegs we made a grid around the source, dividing the area in twelve large rectangles. Over the next eighteen months I painted each rectangle until I had a vast painting of that exotic landscape.

This painting describes a source of the Amazon River that exists at the top of an active volcano in southern Colombia.

(This is one of four vast nature installations that I have created. Those installations trace the cycle of water from river source, to cloud forest, to rain forest, to coral reef.)
