This exhibition features paintings by Toronto artist Carmelo Arnoldin. The imagery is derived from the artist’s childhood recollections and experiences of his birthplace, Revo, Ialy. Although the images are based on actual events, they are not concerned with factual illustration and descriptive reality. Devoid of unnecessary details and anecdotes, they concentrate on the impressions and influence of Revo on the artist throughout his childhood. The works on exhibit are executed primarily on linen, and are under-painted in acrylics with overlays in oils.
Carmelo Arnoldin was born in Revo, Italy in 1943. He studied at Mt. Allison University in New Brunswick from 1972-1976, and received an MFA from York university in 1978. Since 1976, he has participated in exhibitions in Toronto, Halifax, Sackville, Montreal, and Ottawa.
