Dorothy Arnold’s series of figure drawings are simple and to the point. Snapshot moments in human development (with oneself and with others) are made relevant by the sparse black lines applied by Arnold. Who hasn’t “Had Enough”? When one, fed up, pushed to the limit, decides to sit and boycott all the surrounding nonsense for a spell? Comfortable in one’s own skin, it is time to plant it and let the chips fall where they may. Too many other moments when it is far too easy to feel the nakedness of defeat. When one is fully exposed to the elements, forced to turn one’s back on it all – but just to take a breather.
