Explorer’s Notes

The first time I saw the Orinoco River, back in 1986 when I was 14 years old, I was amazed by its vastness and also by the fact that it was so far away and unlike Caracas, the busy city where I lived.

To me, it looked like a different world, a mysterious world. Later on in my life, as I explored, it revealed a few of its secrets to me and I felt at home.

Today it is not mysterious anymore; now it’s magical.

Is this artwork part of a series? If so, how many were printed?

The prints in this exhibition are a series of 20, so only 20 of this specific size and media will ever be made.
