A MAGNETIC SHELTER
OPENING RECEPTION MARCH 11, 2017 7PM
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
This series of paintings by Jeffrey Noble produced in 2015 highlight the overlooked esoteric languages of the street. Noble creates a mythology surrounding the reappearing symbology of manhole covers.
Each work originating as a mono-print lifted from the street itself, Noble continued to embellish these prints with abstract-expressionist like gestures and faux framing airbrushing techniques. This process resulted in a series of coded paintings that allude to lager networks of underground communication and conspiracy, such as crop-circles, ancient sacred geometry, and fictitious futuristic diagrams of other dimensional portals.
This collection of work was first shown as one part of an immersive installation, A Magnetic Shelter, in a retrofitted defunct RV turned mobile project space dubbed “The CoWorker” founded by Brandon Opalka in 2014.
Join us on March 11 for the opening reception of "A Magnetic Shelter" by Jeffrey Noble as we also welcome Allison Matherly, and their collaborative endeavor "Nice'n Easy", to their new artist studio and exhibition space at the Gesamtkunstwerk building.
Focused on creating immersive mixed media installations, Nice’n Easy develops a visually cohesive subtropical vernacular with their material choices and use of repeated motifs. Often referencing themes of self-help, recovery and interpersonal dependency, their fabricated environments utilize romantic tropes to enhance the collective emotive truisms between participants and create a platform for intimate exchange.
