Full Artist's statement
Lisa Noble’s (American, b. 1973) pseudo-realistic paintings represent an ongoing recollection of moments of solitude and quiet introspection. Her environments are presented as an integral part of a specific memory that is at once personal, familiar, imperfect, and unusual.
Her unattended settings ask the viewer to play the additional role of subject. Punctuated by objects from the artist’s past, each scene is housed within the architecture of places Noble once called home.
Noble’s exploration of the physical embodiments and psychological notions of home, as well as conditions of presence and absence, are extensions of the artist’s emotional inquiries and her reflections upon personal growth.
