Visit with Arielle Zamora
Take a look inside Arielle Zamora's studio as they prepare their new body of work to exhibit at SCOPE Miami Beach.
Working with an additive and subtractive process, Arielle begins their paintings by preparing panels with a tinted ground made out of joint compound. They then begin carving into the compound, revealing channels that are then pigmented with washes of oil paint.
"This series is a rumination on how repetition and symmetry not only help clear the mind, but also repair and reassure us as busy people with lives full of change, cacophony, loss, and utter uncertainty. These paintings imbue a sense of stability that can be counted, known as absolute, and folded nicely like a piece of paper."
Arielle's works reflect on the meditative quality of repetition and symmetry and how this visual phenomenon can help clear the mind and offer a sense of respite amongst the chaos and busyness of everyday life.
