Heartstorming art expo in Treviso, Italy

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

If you have the opportunity to visit Venice and the precious and closer city Treviso, just 30 km far from the more famous city, I would recommend you also to go to the Spazio Paraggi, located in Via Pescatori 23, a room and hall dedicated to art expos, conferences, music performances with also a library.

From the 21st of June to the 9th of July, there's an interesting art expo called Heartstorming of a young and talented painter, Roberta Battaglia. If you are in Treviso, I would strongly recommend to not miss it this nice art expo.

I loved this exposition as the paintings are full of colors and really expressive, and the constrast between the black and all the bright and warm colors reminded me something about the famous Catalan painter Joan MirĂ².

Diaries of an explorer

As you can see this is one of the most iconic paintings, called Black Apron, or Grembiule Nero. This is only an example of her painting style, that represents mostly faces and figures underlining their expressivity and feelings. Here she seems to wait for something or someone to arrive.
You can see this also in the above painting, called Desk with drawer, Tavolo con cassetto, where the person seem to go to his desk. Or in the following one, a picture that maybe displays a person ready to go somewhere or for a dinner.
In the following painting, called Static and silent, the apparent movement seems to be freezed,
 whereas the black jacket or cloack is replaced by a colourful Gilet.
These are all oil pastel paintings on artboard, but Roberta also creates sketches and animations that you can see on her website too.

After a chat with her, she told that she does not express a particular message through her paintings, but something that "comes directly from the heart": that's why the art expo is called Heartstorming.

What is really interesting is the creative process of a painting: "everything starts from a line, a colour, or gesture" that the next days will be developed in something more complex. Sometimes she told that she has to "come back after some days, go on with the painting, add, cover and complete".

I want to underline this, as no one knows the process or the hours and efforts spent by an artist to create a painting or drawing.

"I am happy when the people interact and express their feelings by observing the paintings": this is her main aim and what she is looking for.

So if you are in Treviso, do not miss this interesting art expo located in Via Pescatori 23, not far from the railway station and the main square, Piazza dei Signori. Here you find a map in order to find it.

Opening times:
From Monday to Friday: 9am - 7pm
Saturday and Sunday: 4.30 pm - 8 pm

If you like her art, please visit the website of Roberta Battaglia for further paintings, drawings, sketches and animations.

This is Veneto:my land and the off the beaten path Italy.

Do not miss it!
