The Mysteries of the Amazon exhibit features approximately 95 paintings by Peruvian artist Pablo Amaringo and his students from the collection of Scott Olsen, Ph.D. Completed 2001-2016, the large-scale, acrylic paintings are considered to be some of the best examples of Mestizo vegetalista and ayahuasquero shamanism. Exhibiting brilliant use of color, the paintings depict the plant, animal deva-like (or angelic)spirits encountered in deep ceremonial visionary experiences. 60 additional works by Amaringo and his students, also from Olsen’s collection, will be on display at the College of Central Florida’s Webber Gallery, September 14-October 20, 2017.
