This event has ended.

Noah Landfield’s recent work reflects the often volatile nature of metropolitan life. This reflection of volatility, seen particularly in the abstract foundational cloudbursts that fill his canvases, derive also from his longtime fascination with volcanic activity. Utilizing impressionistic overlays of metropolitan architectural renderings inspired by his visits to Japan and his reaction to the compact urban environment of Tokyo and other major cities there. His paintings are redolent of the tension between man-made urban structures, the forces of nature, and the way they manage to coexist. Questions arise through the unsettling nature of the imagery, are these images of the present, past, or future? Are they warnings? These temporal questions lend themselves to the ambiguous nature of the work.

The artist states: “The possibility of visualizing energy and time with artwork is something that intrigues me: playing with the interchange between color vibrations and allowing the viewer to become the synapse between painterly elements. Mixing line, shape and surface variation with highly saturated color and spatial imagery, the tension and disparity causes a viewer’s brain to jump across the gap to figure out what they are looking at. This jump becomes the spark that contains and creates the energy of the painting.”
