Van Arno’s “A Change of Skin”

by Nathan SpoorPosted on

Before I had even read the gallery’s press release on the subject, my take on Van Arno’s works in the current exhibition “A Change of Skin” was one of a sort of awe. Before us is a rebirth of an individual with a grasp on historical allegory that transcends even his own past adventures into the realm. Arno has managed to magnify his own unique visual spectacle, taking his mastery of the medium to an ambitious and successfully exacting end. And the forum for such occasion? The tastemaker hot spot at the heart of the thriving Culver City arts corridor, Corey Helford Gallery. See our favorite paintings from the show below.
