Alderete ve a Rapa Nui y todo el misterio que rodea a esta maravillosa cultura y las reúne en un recorrido gráfico que expone las semejanzas y diferencias entre los distintos pueblos que habitaron no sólo esta isla, sino también las islas de la Melanesia, Micronesia y Polinesia. La mirada de Jorge no es neutral; el gran conocimiento sobre las diversas etapas y facetas de este singular lugar, adquirido tras años de investigación, coleccionismo y fascinación, han permeado de manera notoria en el trabajo del artista. Este libro reúne en diferentes capítulos su trabajo personal y comercial con su colección personal (bibliografía) y materiales complementarios que contextualizan la obsesión de Alderete por el tema.

Alderete explores Rapa Nui and all the mysteries that surround this extraordinary culture to make a graphic journey that shows the similarities and differences between not just the cultures that inhabited the Island but also the regions close by , such as Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. The artist doesn’t have a neutral take on the subject: his knowledge about the different stages of this particular place that he has acquired over years of fascination, which led him to research and collect artifacts, has permeated notoriously on his work. This book combines his personal and commercial work with its own bibliography on the subject and some extra material that evidences Alderete’s obsession with Easter Island and its culture.
