An exhibition of the recent work of Julia Noble inspired by a quote from Matisse. The work is an investigation of colour


Originally inspired by Matisse’s use of paper in his “Cut Outs” Julia Noble's recent works have involved working with paper to see how far she could push its materiality; challenging the viewer with her complex system of production which results in kaleidoscopic rhythmic images. The starting point for many of Noble's creations stems from elements of earlier works transforming them into something new using repeating forms, processes, and colour to provide different perspectives. Incorporating stitch as a drawing method the marks she makes are relatively unconventional but also serve to disrupt the form and texture of the surface.  Furthermore, stitching is synonymous with bringing together, a cohesive force unifying the separate elements of the work.

Noble's creations are instinctive, how they end up is determined by the processes and the colours that are used.  She intends them to be unashamedly joyful and uplifting full of curiosity and optimism.
