'It's very quiet here' exhibition by Noëlle Griffiths
The paintings in the Noëlle Griffiths exhibition at Storiel draw inspiration from the landscape throughout the seasons, exploring space between abstraction and figuration.
An intense time of looking, listening, writing and drawing is the starting point. The paintings explore picture-making using thin, stained and layered paint, each with a memory or sense of place, which develops intuitively.
Noëlle Griffiths said: “It’s very quiet here is often my first sentence when writing notes in the landscape each season. These notes sometimes include what is happening personally or politically in the wider world at that time.”
From 1978-1982 she studied Fine Art at St Martin’s School of Art, London and in 1985 moved to north Wales to paint. In 1987 she started teaching art part-time and has also taught on the part-time Fine Art Degree at Bangor University for the last twenty years.
Noëlle also teaches art courses in south-west Spain and from her studio in Snowdonia. She has exhibited regularly since 1985 and in 2005 started www.artistsbooksonline.com.
The ‘It’s very quiet here’ exhibition can be seen in Storiel until 14 April.
Storiel is open Tuesday-Saturday 11am-5pm.
