Van Arno

The Boogie Disease

January 10, 2009 - February 7,2009
Arno’s paintings move in a new direction of realism, featuring multi-figure compositions
of superstar icons, such as Tina Turner, Suzi Quatro and Johnny Cash, rather than the
archetypical characters he normally portrays. He is noticeably progressing into a
smoother painting style, including text and an more gestural compositions. To push his
figures in maximal proportions, he uses dynamic narratives that heighten the physical
form. He continues to deviate from the norm with altered and extreme postures, causing
him to refer to his painting style as “uber-mannerism.”
