It’s rare for me to begin a post by saying: this artist has a BS in Biochemistry, and an MS in Environmental Science… but in the case of Denver based artist Noelle Phares, that is exactly right. Suddenly her gorgeous architecture-meets-landscape paintings make even more sense, each of them exploring “the ever-encroaching presence of humanity into previously pristine open spaces.” Here is Noelle’s full artist statement:
Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.
“People often remark at seemingly unique marriage of abstract structure and landscape in my work. But in reality, that is what the world looks like these days: the stark break of a distant mountain view by the foreground shapes of the built environments we live in. I choose to paint places that have been altered, for better or for worse, either directly or indirectly by human development. I hope to both raise awareness of the fragile beauty of these places while also highlighting how beautiful and functional manmade design + nature can be if done with symbiosis, instead of nemesis, in mind.”
Well said. Happy Monday.
