Artist Statement by Brian Elder
I like detail, I like odd colors, I like Andrew Wyeth, I like Mark Rothko, I like going around to places where I’m the only one not wearing camo, or packing.
I really like dead of winter places, too, but it’s usually too cold to paint. Opening day for deer – been in California’s outback for a bunch of those, and, as we know, it’s a bad time to see a deer. But it’s a good time to see an image, and that’s what I’m usually after.
About fifteen years ago I met a man who saw the currents of universal love flowing through everything, and could show these to you, if you were interested in looking. I was interested in looking, and so he showed me. And now I humbly present these reflections of what I saw.
Mundo Rio plays the sounds of Brazilian Bossa Nova and Samba, as well as a variety of other South American and Afro-Cuban music. Each musician brings a wealth of musical experience and love of this music to the group.
