ABOUT the artist

ABOUT the exhibition

In Noah’s paintings, a blue sofa becomes a sea and the body’s rafts. Floating in an inland sea, his subjects pose as one body, only a bunch of limbs. Asked in this vague way gives us – the viewer – an opportunity to consider their thoughts, their relationship to themselves, their fleet and to Noah – who is trying to create an equal space between himself and his subjects; lower the barriers to create illustrations of intimacy, connection and respect – transcend the realms of our bodies in search of connections and enchantments not of our current spaces, but further out, beyond the sea. Ultramarine blue is made with the pigment lapis lazuli. A pigment that during the Italian Renaissance was so difficult to obtain (and expensive to use) that its use was limited to just painting the Virgin Mary. We can not touch the blue sky nor can we fill a glass with blue water, the color is illusory, it surrounds us but it is constantly out of reach. It is for this reason that color, so often, symbolically presents dreams, the sky and the unconscious mind. Noah’s series of paintings presented here refers directly to the Italian word ultramarino, which translates to beyond the sea.
