Katya Petetskaya: Am I Nature
19 Aug – 8 Oct
Katya Petetskaya’s Altitude exhibition Am I Nature features fluid, gestural paintings which respond to the artist’s personal examination of their relationship with nature. Contemporary environmental events and experiences of solastalgia have led many to question their individual relationships with nature.
Am I Nature shares a way of processing these experiences. The exhibited works on aluminium, canvas and synthetic paper demonstrate a painting method developed by the artist and influenced by Petetskaya’s performance art practice. Biomorphic and anthropomorphic forms that result from this process act as an invitation to acknowledge, accept and transcend one’s own grief, anxiety, vulnerability, and homesickness in the ever-changing world.
