Betti Pettanati-Longinotti:
" Four Seasons: Fig Tree"
and Perviz Heyat

April 30 - May 27, 2017
Gallery Hop: Friday, May 5, 7 – 10 p.m.

Betti Pettinati-Longinotti and Peviz Heyat are sharing an exhibition at Artworks Gallery, Winston Salem.

Pettinati-Longinotti's show explores mixed media painting/drawing and works in glass. "My work explores the relationship between abstract expression and subjective reality.  With influences as diverse as Richard Pousette-Dart and Jim Dine, new tensions are crafted from seasonal reality and a personal symbolic discourse.

"Ever since I was a child the observation of the changing seasons have nurtured me. Several years ago I began an artistic practice of graphite drawing on top of textured-layered oil painted surfaces.  Many of these explorations have been abstract expressive, but this series explores my love for the fig tree, which associates to personal memory and dream.  Nature is something we all observe and have throughout time.  The underlying of chaos and dichotomy of gentleness is a reaction to life. My works in glass expand upon my theme and observation of the fig tree through the changes within the season of summer.

Heyat's show includes paintings and mixed media on different platforms such as canvas and board. His pop art style approach expresses controversial popular subjects such as corporate culture, Star Wars, wars in general and freedom fighters who lost their lives for the freedom of their people.
