Joseph Arnegger

Born in Boston in 1969 and raised on the shores of Long Island and Florida, Joseph's love of painting was formed at an early age.  Standing before the giants of art history at The Met and studio visiting in the Hamptons, set the stage for his early trials with paint and endless sketchbooks.  He graduated from the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida and while there, he found beautiful color and amazing light that remains in his present work.

Arnegger's work is composed in layers of nostalgic image and color.  This speaks to the influence of many time periods and many different painters throughout art history.  The materials, already with a sense of history of their own, range from found wood to industrial metals.  This, combined with his set of icons, patinas and deliberate mark making, creates images that are unconventionally beautiful yet deeply moving, demanding a second look.
