Claudia Petretti: Luoghi Visti | Places Seen
An exhibition of new paintings, Claudia Petretti presents evocative works in mixed media recalling memories of special places, moments and gardens.
Petretti's paintings are a visual recording of the colours, patterns, textures and rhythms found in the views around us. They are not directly representational but instead evoke the atmosphere of a particular view, providing the viewer with a visual reminder of somewhere visited. Her garden views, often inhabited with butterflies and birds, are joyful interpretations of the vibrant colours and bold shapes of a warm summer’s day.
Claudia Petretti studied Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art under John Houston where she was awarded a First Class Degree. Since graduating in 1988 she has regularly exhibited in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London.
