Cidinha Araripe / Oscar Araripe / Saudação Flores para Harvard

Oscar adora gente, e como gosta!

Elas nunca o cansam. E ele está sempre disponível para uma boa conversa e para receber seus amigos em sua, nossa, belíssima casa.

Ele gosta de receber. E talvez por isso goste tanto de pintar flores. “Receber com flores, nada maior, nada melhor” – sempre repete. As pessoas, os pássaros, nossa casa, seu jardim. Todo dia ele dá canjiquinha para os passarinhos que freqüentam seu exuberante jardim, que ele admira e inspeciona todo dia. Dir-se-ia o seu jardim uma das suas mais belas pinturas, o seu mais belo poema. Pois assim como as coisas do mundo, ele sabe perfeitamente o que está acontecendo no seu jardim.”

Cidinha de Alencar Araripe, advogada, Presidente da Fundação Oscar Araripe, esposa do artista.

Oscar Araripe / Autorretrato com Serra de São José de Tiradentes / 2019.

 

“Oscar loves people, and how!

They never tire him. And he is always ready for a good talk and to receive his friends in his – our - lovely house.

He really enjoys receiving people. And that may be why he likes painting flowers so much. ‘Receiving someone with flowers. There’s nothing better. Nothing greater’ – he always repeats that. People, birds, our house, his garden. Every day he gives some corn porridge to the little birds that visit his exuberant garden, which he admires and inspects every day. He would say that his garden is one of his most beautiful paintings, his most beautiful poem. And just as with what is going on in the world, he knows exactly what is happening in his garden.”

Cidinha de Alencar Araripe, lawyer, President of the Oscar Araripe Foundation, wife of the artist.
