EXHIBITION FOLLOWING CHURCH´S TRACK (DAVID MOSCOSO)
 
Located in the town of Pillaro, one asks for the Hacienda Moya and there rests the first night in a good distance from it; one asks there for the most beautiful mountain, from whose top, if the day is clear, you will see to the East, being your back towards the city of Ambato, and from there you could see the three peaks of the Llanganati, the form of a triangle, in whose cliffs there is a lake, hand-made by man, inside which the old people threw the world that they had prepared for the ransom of the Inca, when they had the notice of his death ......

Dear Friends:

How lucky I am, to be able to introduce you to this Ecuadorian talent of painting, and I say I am lucky, due to the friendship of two great friends who have granted me this privilege, just for having been an explorer of the Llanganati Mountains, one of the favorite themes of this painter.

To be able to try to go through this exhibition in words, "Church’s Track" we have to go back to the origin of landscaping in Ecuador, which was created with the presence of Frederick Edwin Church, an American painter pertaining to the Hudson River School, which for most art critics is the first school coherent with the American art.

This school involves the late luminists and romantics. This could be defined as a style of painting landscapes, characterized by the effects of the light that creates a poetic atmosphere through the use of an ethereal perspective. Church comes, for the first time to Ecuador in 1853, at the age of 27 and remains forever impressed by our natural landscapes, to the point that his works of art taken from the Andean geography will become the symbols of the Hudson River School. Mountains like Cayambe, Cotopaxi and "The Heart of the Andes" where the Chimborazo mountain appears as the background; along with the "Niagara," these are his most famous works of art that today rest in the Metropolitan Museum in New York and in Chicago.

At the same time in Ecuador, some of our landscapers appear inspired mostly by Humbolt’s and Bonpland’s natural current. Rafael Troya, Joaquín Pinto, Honorato Vásquez and Juan Leon Mera Iturralde and Luis A. Martínez from the city of Ambato highlight neatly among this current.

To share the sensations of the landscape that covers David’s study and that of Luis A. Martínez, I am going to explain some more about the precursor of the Andinista Art and Literature, Luis A. Martínez, who belonged to a very distinguished family of scientists and artists from Ambato. His father Augusto, was a Theodore Wolf’s pupil, his sons Luis Alfredo and Nicolas Guillermo, practiced andinismo, which served to capture in black and white the extraordinary collection of photography of the Ecuadorian Serranía, which is now in the Historic Archives of the Central Bank of Ecuador in Quito.

Luis Alfredo Martínez, mostly known as a writer, impacts us with his social novel "A la Costa" which narrates the real dramatization of the exodus of the Indian farming population from the highlands to the coast. Thanks to Martinez, who was the Secretary of Public Instruction in the government of President Leonidas Plaza, the Quito’s School of Arts was re-founded in 1904. But Martinez will astonish us with his paintings of Andean landscapes such as: "Soledad Eterna," "Flanco Norte del Chimborazo," "Chimborazo desde el Occidente," "Paisaje Interiorano," from which the author declares himself self-taught.

Llanganate

With this heritage and sharing the same land, an alchemy phenomenon is produced from which another self-taught artist flourishes, engaged with his thematic. With the rigueur of the purged technique, with the investigation of the secrets of nature, with the capacity only great observers can synthesize, record and remember; and, with the power of the light in those veils and transparencies that create that magical atmosphere, that transform the natural patrimony into cultural patrimony. But, I am no one to introduce you to David Moscoso, lets make Mr. Clinton C. Crocker, representative of New Jersey’s Governor for the education area and Council to New Jersey’s Museum. Here is what he has to say:

"David Moscoso is one of the most important and talented Ecuadorian artists, whom very soon the world will get to know. His work of art will be, one day, exhibited in all the most important and prestigious galleries, including New York, Paris and London. Congratulations David! Congratulations Ecuador!"

To finish this adventure, please allow the explorer to make a comparison between Church’s Track and Valverde’s route. A soldier of the Spanish crown that according to myth and legend discovered the treasure of the Llanganati:

"Located in the town of Pillaro, one asks for the Hacienda Moya and there rests the first night in a good distance from it; one asks there for the most beautiful mountain, from whose top, if the day is clear, you will see to the East, being your back towards the city of Ambato, and from there you could see the three peaks of the Llanganati, the form of a triangle, in whose cliffs there is a lake, hand-made by man, inside which the old people threw the world that they had prepared for the ransom of the Inca, when they had the notice of his death…"

It has been an enormous responsibility to guide, to this distinguished concurrence, through our dramatic geography, to discover the new treasure of the work of art of this great landscapers from the XXI Century: Mr. David Moscoso.
