John Felix Arnold III is a contemporary multimedia artist; seeking reconstruction of the conventional visual narrative, he works to create an immersive engagement between the artwork and the viewer. His exhibition "From Here", is an entirely new body of work that represents a stark departure from Arnold's previous Maximalist style. Demonstrating a release of past convention and the great capacity for renewal, Arnold works both with and against the trademarks of his own style to create an interior world that transcends familiar reference. Comprised of twelve mixed media pieces, "From Here" is a mature new collection that illustrates the depth of Arnold's creative process.
This collection of new works on paper and wood panels is a truly raw journey through process, both in art making and human growth and evolution. The pieces are the direct result of working through pain into enlightenment and a new sense of purpose found in the struggle. - John Felix Arnold III
