Patty Martori, “Works on Paper and Cigarette Tableaux”
D’Amelio Terras, New York
February 7 – March 14, 1998
From February 7 through March 14, 1998 D’Amelio Terras will present a one person exhibition of Patty Martori. This will be the first one person show of the artist in New York since 1991.
The exhibition will include new sculptures and works on paper.
The artist states:
“In my work I employ cinematic, architectural, psychological and theatrical structures as a construct to approach the tension that holds together the uncertainty of feeling and the certainty of thoughts. The aim is toward an enlarged sensitivity that makes more apparent the differences between “seeming” and “being”… The stimulus is to produce an aggregate play acting along spontaneous lines where everyday context becomes a “scene” or tableau.”
Patty Martori lives and works in New York. She has had solo exhibitions with the Pat Hearn gallery in 1989, 1990 and 1991.
