Stremmel Gallery is pleased to present "Paper," an exhibition of new paintings by renowned California artist Charles Arnoldi, on view from February 22 through March 31, 2018. The exhibition celebrates his familiar large-canvas paintings, as well as smaller works on paper. Known for his brightly-colored, abstract forms, these new paintings capture Arnoldi's expressive use of style and subject matter. The artist's reception will be held from 5:00-7:00 p.m., Thursday, February 22. Both the exhibition and reception are free to the public.
"Paper" includes several paintings and etchings from Arnoldi's "String Theory" series. These works are distinguished by continuous looping lines, created by movements from the wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Additionally, works from his "Machu Picchu" series will be featured. These paintings incorporate his dynamic use of colorful interplay and repeated abstract geometrical forms.
"I walk into the studio, setup a problem, and then I solve it," Arnoldi says. "The integrity of the work is built from that process - the struggle - and my belief in the vulnerability and honesty of abstraction."
The artist's reception will double as a commemoration of the brand-new book Charles Arnoldi: Paper, published by Radius Books.
Arnoldi's pieces are held in the collections of the Chicago Art Institute, New York's Guggenheim, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
