Anastessia Bettas

Toronto
My work is a personal interpretation of abstract landscapes based on my passion for geography, travel and architecture. I use cartography style imagery and grids to evoke images of maps, satellite views and architectural structures. My desire is to create a dialogue about sprawl, migration and our encroachment into nature and space. The “Exodus” series is based on my emotional response during this past year and speaks to new beginnings, migration from urban to rural settings, regeneration and hope. I use multiple layers of paint, scraping and carving into surfaces to create depth. I’ve been exhibiting since 2013 across Canada/USA and I’m represented by the Petroff Gallery in Toronto. My work was included in the John B. Aird Gallery national survey, "Painting 2020" an annual showcase of contemporary Canadian artists. I am a graduate of McGill University, U of T, and the Toronto School of Art in art history, eMarketing and fine arts. My process and videos can be viewed on Instagram.
