Adam Longatti Interior Space
ArtHop Reception: Thursday, March 6, 5-8PM
For the month of March 1821 Gallery will be exhibiting the works of local artist Adam Longatti in a series titled, Interior Space. This collection is a bit of a deviation from the plein-air and larger commission works Longatti has been creating for the last decade about California’s Central Valley. They are a marriage between spontaneous plein-air work and studio narrations; so most of these images are the juxtaposition between different experiences that did not exist in the same time-frame, but are connected here to tell a story. Longatti says; “I am dedicated to landscape painting of California and the West. In this land I find inspiration, content and spirituality. I believe the landscape, more than any other signifier reflects the soul of place by revealing the path of human impact upon its surface. It’s the process of discovering and revealing the layers of our environment that sparks my interest. “
As a fourth generation resident of the San Joaquin Valley he made the California landscape; particularly the Central Valley, his life long work. Longatti has had numerous solo showings and professional lectures throughout his career; and was the first Artist in Residence at the Petrified National Monument in Arizona.
