They are raising awareness..

Following my paintings show "WinterMEERchen - a painted comparison between desertification and overboarding ocean" in August/September 2010 at Vienna's Palais Kabelwerk groundfloor, the below quoted article appeared on the homepage of http://www.unddd/ 


"Raising awareness on Deserts and Desertification can be done through many ways.

(by United Nations Decade for Deserts and the fight against Desertification 2010 - 2020)

Traute Macom has criss-crossed many deserts during the last 20 years. Her first contact was with the "White Desert" of Egypt. She instantly felt the same as those who discovered the desert for the first time: beauty and threat. Then came the Namib, the Atacama, Gobi, Taklamakan, and the Sahara deserts, which she traversed first in 2005 from Casablanca to Dakar and in 2009 from Tripolis via Ghadames to the Akakus Mountains in Libya.

One travel after the other, one desert after the other, she gathered many stories. She tells stories about the Nile corridor greening the Sahara; about a village swallowed by sand; rock carvings of wild life that are up to 10000 years old; or the yellowish Harmattan dust winds well known in western Africa.

In her paintings, Ms Macom uses the sea as a metaphor for deserts, and expresses the contradictory feelings of beauty and threat through two seas; the sand-sea, and the water-sea. In her words, "both offer unique special light situations to painters.

Ms Macom is a German painter living in Vienna.
