Nine Months of No Painting: New Painting Studies

Well it had been a very long time, but I finally did some paintings. Just little studies, but at least it is something. Can you believe I haven’t painted at all since May 2019?! Well, it is true. I’ve had too many things going on, and quite frankly I’m tired. Oh-so very tired.

I do have some group shows and a speaking engagement coming up and you can see a list here. Aside from that I am hoping an opportunity I applied to for an off-grid residency comes to fruition. There was a point where I thought I might die without WiFi, but now it sounds wonderful to be isolated for a few weeks. We shall see.

Spring Art Exhibits: Fabulism and Ornate Acids

I have a few shows on view in Ohio that are pretty terrific.

Cleveland: Now thru June 28th “Fabulism: Meta-facts and fictions” at Worthington Yards, Cleveland, Ohio. Curated by Liz Maugans.

Join me with artists Laura Bidwell, Kristen Cliffel, Meng-Hsuan Wu, Claudio Orso, Dante Rodriguez, Omid Tavakoli, and Antwoine Washington exhibit in Fabulism: metafact and fictions, diverse outcomes of exploration for our own “escape rooms” that lead us to dreamscapes, future worlds, revisionist fairy tales and new realities.

This small show further expands on my biomorphic series, “This series brings together Arabella’s interests in botany, microbiology, space, disease, and the evolution of cells. She subconsciously explores the relationships between anatomy, biology and emerging sciences while creating from her own imagination. Each work, at times mirroring personal metaphysical occurrences, contains a slight nod to art history; be it a baroque curtain or a decadent still life.” I’ll have some brand new large paintings on view.

I hope to see you at one of these!
