Enamel and glass in show

Whanganui Midweek - - NEWS -

Fine Arts Whanganui launches a new ex­hi­bi­tion on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 18.

Ti­tled With Gusto, it fea­tures the enamel-glass art of Heina Pet­zold. Born in Berlin, Pet­zold has lived in New Zealand since 1980, and de­rives in­spi­ra­tion from NZ’s nat­u­ral land­scape — rock for­ma­tions, river val­leys, moun­tains, lakes.

Re­flec­tions on the na­ture of the chang­ing land­scape in­sti­gated a body of artis­tic works ti­tled Fault­line Se­ries, which in­cluded the use of vol­canic ash from Mt Ruapehu with his enam­els.

Pet­zold has just been placed third at the pres­ti­gious New Zealand Mo­saic Arts Awards at the Es­tu­ary Arts Gallery in Orewa.

His piece, The World Within, is a sculp­ture cre­ated from white Car­rara mar­ble, adorned with his vi­brant kiln-fired enamel-glass on-lays.

And the work may well make it to his Whanganui ex­hi­bi­tion which runs at the Fine Arts gallery, 17 Taupo Quay, un­til Novem­ber 8.
