Nye + Brown is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Natali e Arnoldi titled 34 Degrees North. Referring to her LA roots as well as global positioning\, Arnoldi is the daughter of another California nati ve \, famed artist Charles Arnoldi. Los Angeles and its proximity to the oc ean has been the driving force behind Arnoldi’s artistic and academic pract ice.

Concurrently pursuing a M.S. and B.S. in ocean scie nce and marine biology at Stanford University\, Natalie has found a synergy in painting and biology: two endeavors that might appear counter intuitive . Instead\, each has given Arnoldi a unique and enriched perspective into t he other. As a scientist\, Arnoldi is trying to make sense of things in the natural world we do not understand. As an artist\, she visualizes the inex plicable. Arnoldi says\, “Both processes\, science and art\, are a form of exploration\, at once (both) highly emotional and analytical\, but always i nquisitive.  The methods might be different\, but the goal is the same  - s eeking truth in the most authentic way I know how.“

The i mages in Arnoldi’s paintings form a visual alphabet of her life.  Like a dr eam that fades in wakefulness\, her paintings stand on the precipice of con sciousness. They walk the line between the abstract and the figurative\, wi lling the psychological effects ambiguous of representation.
