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.”

About Noah Overby
Noah Overby is a painter and printmaker based in Seattle. Overby was born in Honolulu Hawaii and traveled extensively as a child. He lived in Japan when he was 8 years old, an experience that sparked an interest in Japanese culture and aesthetic values. Overby spent his teen years at the Pilchuck Glass School and went on to study studio art at the University of Washington including courses in printmaking, Asian art history and The Japanese Tea Ceremony. Noah is the recipient of a 2007 PONCHO Artist in Residency at Pratt Fine Arts Center and won a Vascovitz Scholarship in painting and drawing. His work hangs in The Seattle Public Utilities Portable Works Collection, The Alexis Hotel and other private collections in the United States, and abroad

Looking for affordable art? There’s nothing that can compare to living with an original painting, drawing, etching,or woodblock print. Knowing that the artist labored in a time honored tradition to produce the object before us is an extraordinary feeling, especially when the image truly speaks to us. Sometimes, however, the piece we would love to live with is beyond our means. A giclee print can offer a more affordable solution.

Giclee printing technology is similar to inkjet, but uses high quality archival inks to accurately reproduce colors and images from original artwork. Learn more.

Current subscribers to my email newsletter are automatically entered to win one of my giclee prints in a monthly drawing. Subscribe here.

My current offering of giclee prints starts at $16.98 for an 8×10 inch print. My gallery on Imagekind.com offers print on demand technology that allows you to select an image, print size and paper stock. They can even print on canvas. The prints are available for purchase unframed, or you can choose a custom mat and frame to compliment your artwork.
