Arriola describes her featured work as “part assemblage art, part photographic still life. Relic-like reminders of the fragile nature of human existence. An ongoing tribute to women I have known.” 

    Arriola says that she first envisioned this ongoing series during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown, when she began photographing decaying plant material in her kitchen sink. Shot at various times of the day and printed on soft fibrous paper, “the resulting pictures are a celebration of nature's continuities, as well as a stark reminder of life's inevitable losses. Like intimate portraits, they provide a window into the soul, revealing the heart's innate desire to hold on to what it has lost.”
 
“As it is to be” will run through March 12, 2022.
