CHARLES ARNOLDI: Still Working November 3 - December 3, 2017


Still Working, celebrates quintessential artist Charles Arnoldi with an exhibition of new work, an opening reception for the artist, a book signing for the brand new book PAPER Charles Arnoldi by Radius Books and Art Santa Fe Presents, and a screening of the documentary film about the artist, Charles Arnoldi: True Believer by film-maker Dale Schierholt. Featuring new works from the past few years, Still Working, pairs Arnoldi’s familiar large format canvases (up to 7+ feet) with smaller works on paper. The works themselves range among Arnoldi’s unique array of styles – teasing out new explorations and amalgamations. Color, form, depth, the creation of space and dimension – these are the lenses that Arnoldi offers the viewer as a way to see art and the world. Whether it is the energetic, almost frenetic scattering of colored lines from a work like Mustang or Chevrolet, the endless tangle of a work like Arsenal, or a new, less hard-edged take on geometric color blocks such as two new untitled 2017 works – Arnoldi is a master at interweaving the varied visual languages which he has carefully developed over decades. No matter the size, palette, or language, there is something uniquely Arnoldi’s that comes through in each piece: an un-cynical and unsentimental dedication to the making of art. Each piece offers a viewpoint, an expression, a world to translate. Still Working gives the viewer an opportunity not only to explore these dynamic works of art – but provides a vision of what it means to be an artist.
