'Andean Potato Pickers, Amaru, Peru'. 24x24 inches acrylic on canvas. Paintings of Peru by John Dyer from our Online Art Gallery

The culture & colours of Peru radiate from this beautiful painting 'Andean Potato Pickers, Amaru, Peru'. Painted in the high Andes during John Dyer's residency for the United Nations' year of the potato with CIP. The amazing biodiversity of the potato harvest can be seen in the colours & forms in the foreground. Condors fly overhead & the Andes can be seen in the background. A stunning painting that will resonate with those who love Peru. 

"The biodiversity of the harvest in Peru is not only visually stunning, but essential to life. The farmers plant a wide variety of each crop to ensure that unexpected rain/drought/cold or heat will not wipe out an entire year’s harvest. A harvest may be reduced by unfavourable conditions but by preserving the biodiversity of the crop they ensure a bountiful harvest each season. The potato tubers come in many shapes, sizes and colours and are collected together on colourful fabrics in the fields for sorting. This painting celebrates the diversity of the harvest and the colourful friendly people of Peru."
