Carnegie Art Museum Announces Fall Exhibition
The Avalanche and The Silence New Works by Linda Arreola
September 10 - November 19, 2017
Influenced by the architecture of Mesoamerica and the sleek lines of modernist design, Linda Arreola investigates geometric spatial arrangements using an elemental and minimalist sensibility. Arreloa’s explorations using geometric abstraction create what she calls spiritual structural environments. As with the experience she had upon seeing the pyramids of Teotihuacan for the first time, ‘I want to create work that gives the viewer a perspective that connects them to a much grander whole”. With this in mind and having a background in sculpture and architecture, she thinks of her paintings as built rather than rendered. Line, color and form are her elemental building blocks from which she creates these abstract environments.
With this new series, The Avalanche and the Silence, Arreloa is venturing into the territory of duality. It is the first time she has worked with two distinct concepts simultaneously. Though the inspiration arose out of the present day experience of our human condition, this duality signifies the hopeful reminder found in opposing positions that creates an equilibrium and ultimately fosters regeneration.
