ZINC contemporary is excited to announce a solo exhibition of watercolor and oil paintings by Sofia Arnold. After taking our Pioneer Square gallery by storm, we are pleased to announce that Fever Dreams will be making its debut in Edmonds. Visitors have loved Arnold’s intriguing color palette, hauntingly imaginative subject matter, and lush painting style.
Drawing from experiences and memories from having grown up as a daughter of 1970s “back to the landers” in unglaciated Southern Wisconsin, Sofia Arnold’s paintings reflect a whimsical mishmash of intoxicated figures and foliage. She is obsessed with her former life that existed on the fringe of society oscillating between feral and civilized, savage and feminine. Her figures dance and interact with creatures and vegetation in the murky wooded countryside. They hauntingly emerge from behind trees and interact awkwardly with others. Working quickly, she uses a wet-on-wet technique to create muted colors and lush dreamlike imagery. Her work plays on primal tensions of freedom in opposition to the suffocating nature of being trapped.
