Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to present "Charles and Natalie Arnoldi: Natural Lineage," recent paintings by father and daughter. The show will open on January 16th and runs through March 7th, and the public is invited to attend a reception for both artists on January 30th, 5-7pm.
Although the visual language of these two Californian artists could not be more different -- the brightly colored geometric abstractions by Charles Arnoldi a bold contrast to Natalie's muted representational evocations of light and atmosphere -- the two share common threads in their investigative approach. Both enjoy conveying their creativity in series, encapsulating ideas and delving deep into their enquiry, painting several canvases of the same subject to fine-tune the aesthetic in question. Both are not shy to present their output in oversized scales, unabashedly captivating the viewer with patchworks of color or quotidian references, and both are equally deft at pivoting their magnitudes to smaller, more relatable sizes.
