This elegant work serves as the first comprehensive look at Arnoldi, a Los Angeles-based, internationally known artist. His influence on other artists is described in a foreword by Frank Gehry, who has been a friend and colleague for many years. The book also includes a candid discussion of the development of Arnoldi's career by the artist and four of the most important people in his life-dealers Gregory Amenoff, Fred Hoffman, and Charlotte Jackson, along with Michael Zakian (director, Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art). The ever-changing vision of the artist, willing to take risks and try new techniques, becomes even more apparent in the major section of the work, which features 160 full-page color illustrations of the various periods and media. The immediate, intense impact of Arnoldi's work comes through on every page, and it is a breathtaking experience to move from a multicolored sculpture to an acrylic/plywood collage to a geometric oil on canvas, all accompanied by the conversation between the colleagues. This spectacular look at one of this country's outstanding artists is highly recommended for all art, academic, and large public libraries.
