Charles Arnoldi Untitled 1992 oil on canvas approx. 72"x96"
Charles Arnoldi has a retrospective of sorts at Oceanside Museum of Art in Oceanside, Ca.
Acknowledged as a master painter by many, his large and colorful paintings are beautiful and accomplished. Repeated forms and elements show up is this exhibition that has works that date from the 70's to 2013. The above monochromatic "Untitled" 1992 was the exception. This painting was the most expressive and risky. It could have failed but didn't.
I, for one, am in the camp of admirers. He has traveled a long and beautiful trail over the past 40 plus years.
