About

acrylic on canvas b. 1946, Dayton, Ohio Since his breakthrough structures made out of branches in the late ‘70s, Charles Arnoldi has worked in numerous styles and media, from charcoal to bronze. But no matter what material he employs or how large he works, Arnoldi always emphasizes texture and composition through pure color abstraction. In the early ‘80s the artist began an evolving series of chainsaw painting-drawing-sculptures, created by laminating sheets of painted and unpainted plywood into thick stacks. Using the chainsaw like a paintbrush or chisel, Arnoldi revealed the layers of wood and color with each mark; repeated asymmetrically, yet rhythmically. His focus is more or less entirely on the optical, abstracting the very structure of the work in a characteristic tension between motif and disruption.
