Peruvian Abstract Multicolor Cubist Painting (2006), "Paracas Mantle"$769.99
Flying figures turn to gaze at the viewer, extending an invitation into a mystical world. Working in bright colors, Theus recreates the precise geometry of pre-Hispanic textiles. The patchwork pays tribute to the Nazca-Paracas peoples, their history and their symbols. More prized than gold, Inca weavings also play a role in this handsome abstract.
Titled "Manto Paracas" in Spanish.
Peruvian Abstract Cubist Painting, "Love of a Mother"$199.99
"In my culture, especially in the highlands, it is customary for women to take their kids with them even while performing everyday chores," explains Peruvian artist Theus. "They strap the infants to their backs, or they keep the older children beside them. It is a gesture of love and happiness, because they hardly separate. In this way, a mother constantly provides the love and care the child deserves."
Titled "Amor de madre" in Spanish.
Abstract Cubist Painting (2006), "Insinuations"$389.99
Circular color fields meld and merge like a kaleidoscopic image. Working in jewel-like hues, Theus explores relationships. "Artistic representation is beautiful in itself," he says. "I do not forget the image of the life of man and of woman. Together, they are the likeness of love, passion and challenge."
Titled "Insinuaciones" in Spanish.
Inca Origin Legend Oil on Canvas Painting, "Mamacoca"
For this hauntingly beautiful painting, Theus turns his brush to the origins of the Inca empire. Capac y Mama Ocllo were said to have founded the great Andean civilization. Married to their son, Sinchi Roca, Mamacoca was much loved. When she died, Sinchi Roca ordered a stone monument, or to be built to her memory. One day, a bush began growing there, eventually becoming a coca tree. The Inca chewed the leaves, but commoners were forbidden to use them. Working in a palette of blues, the Peruvian artist adds accents in bright jewel colors as he depicts Mamacoca arising from the leaves.
Titled "Mamacoca" in Quechua.
