Calo Carratalá
Selvas Negras n°4 by Calo Carratalá - Tropical forest landscape, work on paper

2016

About the Item

Selvas Negras n°4 is a unique pencil on Daler Rowney 1,4 mm paper painting by contemporary artist Calo Carratalá, dimensions are 120 × 81 cm (47.2 × 31.9 in). Dimensions of the framed (wood frame and plexiglass box) artwork are 138 x 99 cm (54.3 x 38.8 in). The artwork is signed, sold framed and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The Amazonian rainforest is depicted in this work by Spanish artist Calo Carratalá, who has visited it on numerous expeditions in Brazil, Peru, and Ecuador. Using his own experiences and the feelings the location evokes, Calo Carratalá recreates the landscape. He has lived in a forest and has fully assimilated it, as seen in his paintings and drawings. Without explicitly saying so, the artist questions how we view nature and the conflicting emotions it can elicit, such as fascination and fear. Contemporary painter Calo Carratalá was born in 1959 near Valencia, Spain, and specialises in figurative paintings of natural landscapes. He has travelled widely to destinations from the Amazon to Norway and developed a romantic view of nature, extolling its beauty and the power of the elements that make it up. Travel is at the heart of the artist’s creative process: he immerses himself in the places he visits in order to paint them.
