In Daniel Kahneman’s best-selling book Thinking Fast and Slow, the famous behavioral psychologist explains the cognitive biases that lead people to jump to conclusions without all of the facts. In short, we generally form impressions based on limited or mistaken information, a concept he calls What You See Is All There Is.

For this latest solo exhibition, What You See Is All There Is, Arkin used this concept as a starting point to explore in painting the boundaries and connections that shape our interactions. With titles that can be helpful or misleading, the work is presented for spontaneous or studied interpretation. Both intimate and larger works align their linear, graphic, and tonal qualities to my dimensional interest and inspirations – exploring juxtapositions and textures and our relationship to them.

Color has been constricted in an effort to highlight the compositions. Unlike previous bodies of work, these paintings have been made sequentially, exploring the use of wax, ink and shellac in varying combinations alongside other media. While they often use observations as launching pads, they have no mimetic pretensions, hence the title of the show, with a nod to Daniel Kahneman and the idea that what you see at first glance may not be all there is.
