1st Place Open: Fletcher Forbes

Please join us on Wednesday, May 16th at 7:30 pm, at the Natural History Museum (room TBD), for a presentation by Natalie Arnoldi.

Natalie Arnoldi is an artist and marine researcher living in Venice, CA.  She has been a long time member of Dr. Barbara Block’s lab at Stanford University, starting as an undergraduate intern, then becoming a field and research technician.  Her primary research focuses have been spatial ecology and behavior of large pelagic predators like great white sharks and tunas.   Arnoldi is a graduate of Stanford University with a Master of Science degree from the program in Earth Systems specializing in ocean science and policy, and a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology. She will be returning to Stanford this September to pursue a PhD in marine ecology.

As a southern California native, Arnoldi’s life has always centered around the ocean, which has been her inspiration for both academic and artistic pursuits.   Arnoldi has pursued careers in both art and marine science since 2009.  She has found a synergy in painting and science: two endeavors that might appear counterintuitive. Instead, each has given her a unique and enriched perspective into the other.  Her work explores the fine line between abstract and figurative painting and the psychological effects of ambiguous representation. Arnoldi makes large scale oil paintings depicting a myriad of subjects, often with an environmental narrative.  She has had over 35 paintings exhibitions, including 7 solo shows, and her work is in numerous prestigious collections, including the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art.
