Charles
Arnoldi

Charles (Chuck) Arnoldi (b. 19460) is a painter, sculptor and printmaker.  He attended art colleges in Ventura and Los Angeles, California but later decided to abandon formal education and to complete his art education through his art practice.  Arnoldi's work is best known for its colourful abstraction, incorporating the use of wood as an expressive medium, often using tree branches and twigs. 

His longtime friend, architect Frank Gehry has written of him:   'Chuck Arnoldi is one of my best friends.  I've watched Chuck grow over the years through his many iterations - from plastic and ropes, to sticks, to wood, to chainsaw pieces and to painting. He is a prolific artist, and he has made hundreds of works over the time I've known him.   

He's also a relentless perfectionist and he gives himself entirely to the art.  The best art made is intuitive, not overly intellectualised - it is what it is, and it's got the passion of the artist expressed through whatever materials are used.   It comes into existence almost as a surprise.  In Chuck's case, the surprises have been many.   They are often essays in beauty and always engaging'.
