Georgia Noble

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Georgia Noble is an internationally selling Fine Artist living and working in Manchester. She attended The Manchester School of Art and graduated in 2015, specialising in oil painting.

Since graduating, she has shown work in The Curwen Gallery’s ‘Northern Graduates’ exhibition in London and was selected by Rebecca Wilson, Chief Curator and VP, Art Advisory at Saatchi Art to appear in their 2016 ‘Invest In Art’ initiative.

In Georgia’s practice she aims to transcend the conventions of traditional landscape painting in order to present the viewer with a sense of space that, through both expressive mark making and the thin layering of oil paint, goes beyond the physical and real to evoke a sense of somewhere ‘other’.

Often through the omission of a clear structure and horizon line, she uses both suggestive and bold marks, combined with a varied palette to allude to the natural environment in attempt to capture and represent the energies and forms it possesses. Familiarities found within the paintings provide the viewer with a sense of stability and recognition with the world they are accustomed to, while the more abstract formations deliver a sense of escapism.

It is her aim that the work provokes questions of the metaphysical and hints at the sublime, challenging preconceptions of our existence within nature and addressing our inferiority and mortality in relation to it.

The paintings themselves are made in response to her own experiences and relationship with the natural environment and, painting impulsively, she lets this be the source that she works from and builds her compositions through methods of abstraction to create a final image that is free from formal structure and is open to interpretation.
