“These paintings are ruminations on color, written in the language of reiterated line and shape. Many of them are inspired by shape and color relationships in the urban landscape directly around me, from boarded up windows to the corrugated side of a graffitied warehouse. Some are informed by the movement in a piece of music, or by a single phrase of lyrics.” — Arielle Zamora

About the Artist

File 82768

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 her 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 her work. Chance imperfections humanize her abstractions and invite a scavenger hunt-like engagement with the work.
