Natalie Arnoldi grew up in Malibu. Deeply enriched by such coastal experiences, her oil paintings, however, are not so much picturesque, as they are quietly treading with fuzzy emotional frequency. Ranging from the momentary bliss of a fading firework over water to the lonesome bending highway long after dusk, each piece captures a certain hypnotic and unsettling obstruction of weather and abstraction of shape: a familiar interlude before the abyss.
Of her work, Arnoldi states, “Both processes, science and art, are a form of exploration, at once (both) highly emotional and analytical, but always inquisitive. The methods might be different, but the goal is the same—seeking truth in the most authentic way I know how.”
