Reunion at Man-Made Lake, measuring 24×48 inches, a new acrylic and oil painting on canvas by Sofia Arnold, is a relatively large-scale work for this artist. This is a positive as it gives Sofia more surface to fill with ethereal detail. The participants in this scene possess human, fauna, and flora traits. Although not of a single species, they share a common history as they engage in a ritual communion. Sofia Arnold’s delicate brushstrokes, gentle airy washes, and gentle exclamations of color reveal an intricate world in another time and place with a dynamic system of rules for interaction. Intriguing, compelling, and mysterious, this painting suggests a doctrine, but does not reveal its secrets. Sofia Arnold will be participating in our biennial exhibition Summer in Wisconsin which takes places from July 1st through September 3rd. Click here to see more of Sofia Arnold’s work.
