It’s a Beautiful Planet
I don’t want to sound gloomy, but it is a pity that our beautiful planet is suffering because of our greedy ways. Helmut Ditsch is not an environmentalist; he is simply a painter, but he is able to capture part of the glory nature has to offer in his works of arts.
This Argentine-born painter was introduced at an early age to two of the most beautiful landscapes of his homeland (The Pampa grassland, and The Andes mountain range) and fell in love. That love for the massive in nature was something that marked him deeply, and it would accompany him throughout his long career. He took being one with nature to the next level by subjecting himself into several expeditions under extreme conditions. From mountaineering in the Andes, or the Austrian Alps, to crossing the Patagonian inland glacier, his sense of adventure and wonder is definitely reflected in his works.
Helmut Ditsch is an already more than established painter, with some of his works being commissioned by big names, and hanging on the walls of the rich. His paintings depict beautifully the grandeur of our dying planet, perhaps his depiction of “Perito Moreno” the glaciers from the Argentinean Patagonia region could become some sort of a relic a few hundred years from now. He now resides in Ireland, where he has been living since the year 2000.
I am not here to promote conservation, or force people the idea of recycling, but I would like for you to look at these beautiful paintings and think about what kind of impact you are having individually on our Planet at this moment…
