“Rewilding the Human Spirit” Reviewed Positively by New York ARTNews


Amazilia’s book of nudes in nature has been positively reviewed by Jennifer Vignone of New York ART News. Jennifer comments :-
“one of the admirable things about Paul Veron’s online book, “Rewilding the Human Spirit” is the exploration of a theme. This book is an immersion in the nude poised in nature, standing out against the landscape or melding with the elements. He opens the book with an essay where he recounts several experiences that inspired him to his own “rewilding” and the creation of this volume. As Mr. Veron explains in Chapter Three of his accompanying text:

“…Rewilding is all about the experience of connecting deeply and intuitively to, and belonging in, this world and its many varied landscapes and environments. It is also about being very comfortable and at home with nature, taking some form of spiritual and/or mental nurturing from such contact”.

His text indicates his searching to reconnect. He recounts instances of social gaffs and moments of realization in how his life and exposure to the elements has been very different from many, and how this has affected his knowledge and his appreciation of others’ experiences. Ultimately this becomes a visual experience with photographs, that through their creation, engage the viewer in the rewilding experience.

The photographs depict the splendor of the landscape. They are lush, powerful, and inviting.”

Dress Code

We live in troubled times and the pandemic has caused havoc. I would like to share my Covid art. May come across as just a cartoon on first look. But look deeper and ponder. Perhaps you will read between the colors. Thank you n stay safe.



Still on the theme of global warming, wildlife is in danger and the poor bears will not escape.

Ignoring actual trends, the paintings are inspired by social phenomena and nature. The works of mine are the images of the inner memory. They create themselves through me.

Art Exhibition , Óriq coletivo artistico Gallery, Lisbon, portugal


” Im_provável – quando o caso acontece ” , Result of work developed throughout 2020, this set of works has the character and the plastic exploration of each one of the plastic artists, who consider that there is harmony between both approaches. Although each one has their space defined in the exhibition, there will be integration work, at the level of curatorship.

Chance led Nogueira de Barros and João Amoêdo Pinto, who did not know each other, to collaborate earlier this year in the collective exhibition that took place in this space, leaving the possibility of a joint exhibition open.

Layer the layer Nogueira de Barros takes us to worlds of fantasy and imagination, creating a complexity of textures and transparencies.
