About Me

BIOGRAPHY

CESAR BERTEL (1957, Cartagena de Indias)

For 15 years, I lived in the Amazon jungle of Colombia and therefore I painted her landscape in my large format watercolors. She is a living being comparable to a woman because of her beauty, her shapes, her inside, her fragrances and for that tireless love, bearing new fruits. Our Inca, Mayan and Aztec ancestors were right to call her Pachamama, because they saw what I feel when I enter into her deep light and decipher her labyrinths and forms. I experience my fears and her endless polychromy, and thus in each creation I draft a map to go through her and live in her by placing the observer in an internal dialogue of harmony with nature in front of my creations.

These jungles are our life, they are the life of planet earth: they are fresh water, they are pure air, they are food, they are humidity, they are medicine, they are roof, they are biodiverse but they are also mulatto, Indian, mestizo, black, American, they are sacred, they are humanity, they are for all, they are our essence. It is not the jungle of New York or Paris; it is not the Natura of Rome, nor the Cybele of Greece or Peking; she is our mother earth, is the Pachamama of García Márquez, Simón Bolívar, José Eustasio Rivera, Neruda, Chico Méndez, Bertha Cáceres, Juan Ceballos and many others who gave their lives to protect it of progress and the devastating technology of capital.

In each work, I nourish an inner feeling and a respect for the secrets of that immense living being that can only exist through the creative act of a supreme, sovereign and infinitely perfect intelligence, like that of God.

An important characteristic of my watercolors is that they are in their great majority in large formats, in canvased papers, where I no longer use glass and with this very old procedure their life is indefinitely extended.

Gabriel García Márquez

” In the watercolors of Bertel, I see the landscapes of Macondo

He had never seen watercolors with those sizes, and what I like most is that they are very nice and clean
