Arrieta´s paintings reveal the interpretation of natural wonders, beautiful organic forms, diverse and varied in their presentation. An abstractionism full of color and vigor, in strokes of vigorous spatula, impressive texture and contrasting with subtle atmospheres, in a contemporary style and beautifully degraded. Nature's most basic and minute forms and shapes, intended to evoke a range of emotions, expressing the beauty of the forms and colors he finds in nature express acomplexity of artistic, personal, and environmental feelings. Arrieta´s pictorical structures are beautiful in color contrast and meanful detail tending to ariate and fill spaces outline áreas of contrasting color space. They express the natural world with creativity, elegantly beautiful works pushing abstraction to the edge of the finely finished object. Profound explosion of texture and shape, a quiet collision of forms, the beauty often unseen, allow our hearts and minds to open to the wonders of life thru abstractionist and voluptuary poses contrived in the interest of compositional balance.The story on the canvas often blur the lines between fantasy and reality, leaning more on imaginative spontaneity to create something than is loose yet confident.
