ABOUT LISA noble

Lisa Armstrong Noble (American, b.1973, Winnipeg, Canada) began her formal artistic training at the Alberta College of Art & Design in 1996.

During each year of study Noble’s efforts were recognized with the Dean’s Merit and Corcoran Scholarships.

Noble’s work is included in many private collections across the U.S. She has been recognized by The Washington Post, The Washington CityPaper, The New York Times, Miami New Times, D.C. Pulse Magazine, and Studio Visit Magazine. Noble was named one of Washington’s ‘25 Most Beautiful People’ by Washingtonian Magazine.

Noble’s first exposure to art occurred at the age of four, while during a field trip with her Kindergarten class to the Winnipeg Art Gallery she saw a painting by British artist Brigette Riley. Riley’s distinctive Op Art style of black and white form and the disorienting effects of her canvases instantly struck a chord with Noble, who was at once profoundly impacted by art’s innate power to dissolve the veneer of the everyday.

artist statement

I paint as a means to write a new memoir for myself because I have lived my life by a set of incomplete stories. Over time I filled in the blanks with my own ideas, blending myth and reality into an acceptable framework that carried me into adulthood. The structures that punctuate the landscape of my youth and the objects contained within their interiors serve as markers along the path to exploring, and at times unearthing, my personal history. 

 

Painting rights me on the days when I am in need of getting the noise out of my head. It heals and comforts me on the days when I need to go to that place where I can see my life’s story unfolding all around me. Painting grounds me and gives me the strength to keep going.

The After Dreaming Catalog by Artist Lisa Noble

LISA NOBLE, AFTER DREAMING

Foreword

"My hope is that this catalog will help you to feel a sense of place and to find comfort in the familiar aspects of the scenes. These are the places of my past, my personal history. At times, it is painful and difficult to revisit them. At other times, I am reminded of the magical properties of being alive."

Foreword

Publisher Steven T. Zevitas writes, "The featured artists represent a wide range of aesthetic viewpoints that I think accurately capture the pluralistic time in which we live. Some of the artists .... are self-taught, while others hold graduate degrees. Some have shown extensively, while others are at the beginning of their careers."

vol.40

Juror: George Kinghorn, Director, University of Maine Museum of Art

Foreword

Publisher Steven T. Zevitas writes, "There is a crisis in the art world that, in my opinion, is only getting worse. Put simply, there are now thousands of artists around the world producing serious work and far too few opportunities for that work to be exhibited over meaningful contexts. ... I launched [Studio Visit Magazine] in 2008 so that we could accommodate the needs of more artists than New American Paintings could serve."
