Georgia Noble is known for her atmospheric and sublime landscapes that appear at the same time familiar and otherworldly. With the help of her primary medium – oil paint, the artist explores and challenges the boundaries of the traditional genre of landscape, creating paintings that go beyond a mere representation of a physical space.
The source imagery becomes a mere hint, vague inspiration to Noble, who treats it with confident freedom. Thin layering of oil paint, abstract mark making and a varied palette all contribute to conveying an impression that the landscape is turning away from earthliness.
According to Georgia "My abstract paintings are not representative of actual space but symbolise similarities to landscapes. I aim to transcend the conventions of traditional landscape painting by blending the background and foreground, presenting the viewer with a sense of space that goes beyond the physical and real to evoke a sense of somewhere ‘other’."
This metaphysical, transcendental nature of Noble’s work encourages contemplation and challenges preconceptions of our existence within nature. Working intuitively, Georgia Noble builds compositions through abstraction to create a final image that is free from formal structure and is open to interpretation.
Noble graduated from Manchester School of Art in 2015, and has been selected for a number of prizes and publications, including Saatchi’s “Invest In Art”, featuring most outstanding emerging artists worldwide. Noble’s work is in private and public collections in Europe, US, Canada and Australia.
She lives and works in Manchester, UK.
