Bringing together the work of Brazilian artist Kim Poor and the text of art historian Edward Lucie-Smith, Amazonia Imagined is an important and beautiful work that captures the vital link that Amazonian people share with the past.
 
The Amazon has captured the public imagination for its barely touched and natural sublime, and Poor's artwork encapsulates the magic and colors of that extraordinary region. Her work also creates images inspired by Amazonian mythology, and it offers a window into the world of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon. Smith’s text insightfully contextualizes Poor’s work and draws out its mythological and anthropological connections. The result is an elegantly conceived and executed tribute to these indigenous peoples and Poor’s powerful technique.
