About the work :

Manyara Lake / Black water lake is a painting by contemporary Spanish artist Calo Carratalá from the "Jungle" series.  As with all his series, Jungle is also an ode to colour: the colour green here in all its shades, from the brightest to the darkest.

In the series: ‘Jungle’, Spanish artist Calo Carratalá shares his vision of the Amazonian rainforest, which he has travelled to on numerous expeditions in Peru, Ecuador, Tanzania and Brazil. Calo Carratalá recreates the landscape, drawing on his personal experiences and the sensations the setting exudes. His paintings and drawings illustrate a forest that he has lived in, transcended and fully assimilated.

With each brushstroke, the air’s humidity becomes more palpable, feelings of fear or excitement are almost real in sinking into a forest so thick that it seems ready to swallow you.  Without pushing it, the artist questions our relationship with nature and the ambivalent feelings it can inspire, in-between fascination and fear.

"I am searching for the last great wildernesses which must be preserved" - Calo Carratalá

Calo Carratalá is a contemporary Spanish artist, based in Valencia, specializing in landscapes. With a passion for traveling, he has visited the Amazon, Colorado, the Alps and the Pyrenees and even the forests of Norway: always armed with sketching pad, the artist sketches the sensations he obtains from the different places he visits. Similar to the artists from the romantic period, Calo Carratalá portrays a natural landscape which is both agitated, perhaps even worrying, and also grandiose, inciting admiration and contemplation.
