@ ARC Gallery

Opening Friday, May 25th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Saturday, June 16th

Each one of Joan d’Arcambal’s sprawling, color-drenched paintings appears to be a vivid record of the painting process. In fact, it’s a dazzling illusion, because her large, paint thickened works-that is, her signature impasto style represent the end of the act: the terminus of an artistic expedition, which she reaches by launching herself into a near-trance state, to paint for hours, until she can no longer stand or hold a brush.

“Painting for me is like entering another world,” says d’Arcambal. “I paint without thinking – it’s completely intuitive. I believe that the work reflects that.”
