CHARLES ARNOLDI

Neue Luxury - - Front Page -

Tourni­quet is an as­sem­blage of mul­ti­ple painted can­vases. It in­cor­po­rates painterly tech­niques fa­mil­iar to cu­bist pain­ters (Leger, Braque, Pi­casso) and yet shifts the lens into con­tem­po­rary lan­guages through shad­ow­ing and other ef­fects. Art Critic Dave Hickey, a clear fan of Arnoldi’s work, called him a ‘nat­u­ral’ and a ‘pro­foundly in­no­va­tive artist’ cit­ing Arnoldi’s ap­proach as be­ing ‘wildly fresh, and nat­u­ral where vi­sion, skill, and in­tu­ition are in­sep­a­ra­ble’. Ar­naldi trans­forms what he sees, com­bin­ing in­stinc­tual and moral com­mit­ments and process.
