Over the last decade Arden has widened his artistic practice to include collages, videos, paintings, sculpture and web-based projects. However, even though his working practice is becoming more diverse, certain themes continue to run though his work. These are history, modernity and the archive. Arden has created his own immense archive of images, that he has collected from newspapers, magazines and the internet that he continually uses in his different series of works. Driven by a personal necessity, Arden delves into the trash heap of history for images that reveal something about how and why we arrived at our present predicament. Arden’s paper collages are intimate in scale and seem to channel the history of collage while entertaining various subjects through their kaleidoscope of cut and torn fragments. His digital collages are generally more orderly and speak of the need to archive and its attendant folly. Arden’s more recent paintings and drawings present singular images in a graphic style similar to early Pop Art but always with critical intent. [Extract : Brancolini Grimaldi Gallery]

My sense of my art and that of other people’s art, whether modern or ancient, is deeply embedded. Often, when I run into other artists and ask how they are, or how their work is going, I am baffled that they run off a list of events happening around them. What’s really happening is down in the studio with a pencil and a drawing pad, experimenting and exploring ideas and materials or executing the pieces themselves. But then how do you talk about that? If there were words, it would destroy the essence of my personal experience of fooling around with materials and ideas. I’ll leave the words to the critics…
