ZINC contemporary is excited to announce a solo exhibition of watercolor and oil paintings by Sofia Arnold.
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 watercolors 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 technique of wet-on-wet watercolors 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.
