Jean Noble RI, SWA
Jean Noble is a contemporary artist living and working between London and Essex. Her work explores the boundary between representation and abstraction. She starts with something seen, a building, landscape or object taken out of context or a particular light. The finished works evolve out of a process of continual change, and an innate knowledge of colour and composition which comes from her background in design.
Her paintings, which start as sketches plein air, reflect upon the impermanence of life and the forces of nature.
Jean believes art is an extraordinary glance at the ordinary. Her paintings are about reality without resorting to imitation. Jean tries to create personally meaningful work, working in oils, pastel and water-based media.
Jean trained attended Loughborough College of Art and then Kingston University graduating with a BA in Design, followed by short courses at Central St Martin's and Summer Schools at the Slade in London.
She is a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) and Society of Women Artists (SWA), Chelsea Art Society and has won a number of prizes, most recently the 2017 Barbara Tate Memorial Award, Society of Women Artists exhibition.
Jean exhibits widely in the UK. Highlights include the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibitions, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, Royal Institute of Oil Painters
Royal Watercolour Society open exhibition,The Pastel Society
