Exhibition Information

Tarpey Gallery is excited to present an intimate exhibition of new paintings by Derbyshire based artist Lewis Noble.

 

In these new works, the paintings stand in for the landscape itself. The process of building many layers of paint over time, eroding and repainting, has echoes in the way the landscape is made. Many of the works are painted outside or begun in situ then completed in the studio. This helps to maintain a spontaneous feel to the work and in the studio the process of constantly referring to the many small paintings, sketches and collages keeps the work grounded in a very unique visual language that the artist has worked extremely hard at developing over a distinguished career.

 

Although they are very much images of the real, earthy landscape, the works don’t usually try to picture any specific place and often aim to avoid the overtly pictorial. Instead Lewis attempts to walk the tightrope between representational and expressive painting to convey a landscape that is still happening. If you were able to look to the left, right, above or below the canvas, you could see another entirely different yet interconnected image. These are not photographic frozen moments but paintings which contain all the time it took to make them.
