The Landing is pleased to present Lone Stars, a selection of recent works by Chuck Arnoldi and Leonardo E. Marmol. This off-site features recent styrofoam and wood sculptures by Arnoldi that expand on his interest in material and form alongside Marmol’s painterly meditation on his Cuban-American heritage. Exhibited in a Frank Gehry-designed loft in Venice, California, this exhibition space highlights both Arnoldi’s artistic coming-of-age in ‘60s Venice and Marmol’s parallel career as an artist/architect.
Chuck Arnoldi has been producing paintings, sculptures, and prints for over forty years. He has exhibited at the USC Fischer Museum, the James Corcoran Gallery in Los Angeles, Documenta V in Kassel, Germany, the Whitney Biennial, and the Corcoran Biennial, among others. Arnoldi’s work has been accessioned into the collections of institutions worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Arnoldi is known for his colorful, expressionistic works that reveal an interest in the material world. While his chromatic paintings frequently incorporate sticks and twigs, his recent sculptures are composed of carefully arranged blocks of painted wood.
Leonardo E. Marmol is an artist and architect based in Los Angeles. Marmol received his B.Arch with a Minor in Philosophy from California Polytechnic State University in 1987, was elevated to the College of the Fellows of the American Institute of Architects in 2007, and was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 2009. As a painter, Marmol explores affect, abstraction, and history. His first solo show, Los Colores de Assimilation, focused on what he calls his search for heritage as the American-born child of Cuban parents. Marmol also works as the Managing Partner at Marmol Radinzer and lectures widely on the topics of architecture, sustainability, and restoration. Leo also serves on the board of trustees of the Palm Springs Art Museum.
