Float, Flitter, Fade: New works by Noah Overby

Inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi Noah constructs poetic images from cloud forms, floral images and decorative patterns. These paintings use a simple, pared down visual vocabulary to explore themes of tranquility and impermanence. They are intended to convey a hushed-dream like mood that sparks memories or personal associations for the viewer.

Noah says of his work, “I want to create an image that functions like a haiku poem. With relatively simple means I want to evoke a tangible mood that sucks the viewer in. I’m creating a place somewhere between reality and a dream world, someplace to pause and gather one’s thoughts.”
