These paintings are ruminations on color, written in the language of reiterated line and shape.

Arielle Zamora

About the Artist


Arielle Zamora (b.1990) is Portland Oregon-based painter and printmaker who creates paintings through a labor-intensive process of layering joint compound and paint. Reacting to the geometry of their substrate, Arielle carves a variety of lines into the surface to reveal subtle shifts in color and line weight, while repeating and manipulating shapes and forms that recur throughout all of their work. Chance imperfections humanize their abstractions and invite a scavenger hunt-like engagement with the work.
