"I ENJOY PHOTOGRAPHY AS A POINT OF ENTRY TO A SPACE CREATED WITHIN AN IMAGE, A FEELING SPACE"
The key to comprehend Arielle Chiara’s experimental art is to see it as fluid. Whether she captures rock formations or iridescent fish scales, Chiara seeks out the harmony in whatever she creates through her lens.
Arielle Chiara has an original approach to her portrayal of the human form. Together with Zoe Bleu and Darius Khonsarythe she experiments freely in their art collective and label Nautae. Curiosity drives her to explore the fractionally related terrains of art and fashion before she reflects on the interconnections and communicates her relationship with the body.
Arielle Chiara translates her perceptions to abstracted forms materialized by natural elements such as hair, salt and fingernails, to complement the human body. She disguises her sculptures in mystery, an abstract veil which seem to dominate her artistry.
On Arielle Chiara’s Instagram account @_n__arcis_s___u________s, texture is easily recognized as a central element of her visual identity. Perfectly visualized in the juxtaposition of liquid-like silks against coarse rock, her visual language sets off mental connections culminating in thoughts about the human body. In spite of her rawness and demanding area of focus, her followers end up wanting more.
