Arabella Proffer’s biomorphic paintings revolve around a fascination with the history of medicine, microbiology, and surreal organisms. Her work is many times of landscapes combined with abstract representations of organic processes, alien botany, and the cellular basis of the unnatural. Each painting is started from a place of abstraction; becoming filled with strange hybrids of flowers, cells, and symbols; a nature that is a genetically modified in oil paint.
The show at Hedge Gallery opened and has been amazing with all of the feedback I have gotten! Thank you all so much and thank you to the Hedge Gallery staff and Ohio Arts Council for making it happen. More pictures from the show opening to follow. There's also been some press from The Plain… Continue reading Sometimes I Work in a Viking Helmet
This will be very different work for me and it's the first time I'll be having a dedicated show of the new direction I've been going in. I read a horoscope a few months back saying that for me, as a Gemini, unveiling a new creative direction in public in June was the worst time to do so and it would not be well received. I normally don't put much stock into horoscopes -- let alone the Astro Twins -- but the description was a little too on the mark and specific with my situation as I was negotiating a gallery space. I'm glad the show got moved to the late fall!

I'm glad these originals are going to some good homes and I'll be getting them out over the next few weeks to everyone. Congrats to Margaret McCartney, you won the framed acrylic/watercolor of "Hoodlum" and… Continue reading Winners + Thanks
I have to say I think that was the most packed art reception I ever had! I didn't think so many people would come out (all the way to the westside) let alone in the rain, but there we had it! My pals K&G even flew in all the way from San Francisco and we… Continue reading Snaps from the Reception at BAYarts
I'm pleased to announce my next solo show is April 4th at BAYarts! I have been teaching kids classes at the beautiful BAYarts campus in Bay Village for several years now, so I'm really excited to be exhibiting there. This exhibit will depict fun stuff like amputees, ocular prosthesis, virgin goddesses, and maybe a nude… Continue reading Medical Themed Art Show in Cleveland
I was kind of distracted talking to people and didn't take a lot of photos of the work, but here are some from the opening reception for "Illustrious". It'll be up through the end of the month at Wall Eye Gallery. Lots of comics to read and posters to see! You can read a little… Continue reading Last Night in Cleveland
