"From Llanganati to Chimborazo" -The mystery of the Andes in an art collection- "After constant research, visits, and observing of the mythical foothills of the Llanganates, this work interprets in a unique way the colors and shapes that jealously depict the mountains where according to legend, the last Inca monarch, Atahualpa, ordered that a treasure be hidden. "I consider that beyond the myth, The Llanganates are in themselves the treasure; the mountain range is a portal to discover and rediscover this arresting geography." And in homage to the painter Fréderic Church, David Moscoso applies a technique that has distinguished this work as a major example of that landscape school that has been overlooked today. Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900) visited Colombia and Ecuador around 1853 and returned in 1857 to learn more about the equinoctial country. ... The work Llanganati addresses the idea that flesh and spirit are one, re-demonstrates the latent Andean memory; the native thought before conquest and colonization of the continent, which was not based on abstract Metaphysics; if not, in concrete thinking about facts, phenomena and objects; to live and feel the Water, the Earth, the Wind, the Sun in harmony and in the presence of the volcanoes and the disquieting peaks of Los Llanganates." This work is the beginning of 4 high format paintings named LLANGANATI 2 /3/4 made at different points of my career , the Llanganati 5 will appear hopefully soon offering a new point of view of this mythical region.
