Fran Noonan
Most Tender Earth



Exhibition:
Friday, March 25, 2016-Saturday, April 23, 2016


Artist Statement:

My piano teacher claimed that questions are better than answers. I think this idea pertains to painting, too. I prefer to allow the viewer to fill in the blanks or give just enough image to engage the imagination. When in the act of painting, there are so many possibilities as to composition, color combinations, lighting, edges, shapes and their relations, and to leave a certain amount of ambiguity is what interests me. If everything is stated too completely, there is nothing left for the imagination to do.

The marriage of art and nature is such a wonderful fit. There is so much for the imagination to play with. This heavenly body we share with all beings, in its never-ending state of fluidity, challenges the artist to his own interpretation, inevitably influenced by his own life history. Hopefully, sharing this vision resonates with others' appreciation of this most tender earth.
