Arlette Stella is an abstract painter with occasional work that reaches surrealism. Her work is characterized by bold colors since she is mainly color-blind and needs bold colors to see the work. Arlette’s philosophical nature is the basis for her work. Every work is the result of a conversation she has had with canvas, paints, and colors.
Arlette Stella works predominately in acrylic paint. Because of open nature is always exploring, she also experiments with gouache, acrylic ink, molding pastes, and water. Painting is, for Arlette, an exploration into the possibilities and depths of thought and feeling.
Each work aims to incur, inspire, and maybe even nudge (kick you in the yeah-butt!) the viewer to experience and act on kindness. Arlette states clearly: Kindness is my brand!
Arlette Stella is an artist member of the San Diego Artist Guild of the San Diego Museum and of the Artist Guild of Palm Springs/Palm Desert, among other groups. She is self-taught, late-blooming, and unstoppable.
For me, the juncture between education, imagination, and experience yearns to illustrate and inspire the action of kindness through art.
My deeply philosophical & innately abstract nature is evident in every stroke & movement. Even a blank canvas does not interfere with the active dialogue I enjoy with color and canvas.
Being partially color blind, my work tends to be bright and colorful. Color expresses the energy of movement. Movement is life. Kindness is life at its best.
I aim to engender and call out the kindness within you that in turn urges you to action.
