Edward Noott

B. 1963

Contemporary British Impressionist artist painting en plein air

Working extensively and confidently in oil paints, Edward Noott is able to build up a rich, textured, tactile surface, where sunlight is caught and refracted off the ridges of paint. The brushstrokes of the artist’s brush are clearly visible in all Noott’s work, as the thick trails of paint inscribe his signature over the canvas. Despite the broad sweeping brushwork, an extraordinary degree of detail is harnessed within the painting using light in both outside settings and interior spaces. The paintings reveal an exquisitely perceptive sense of modelling between the loose, expressive brushwork and the intricate detailing of form.

Edward says of his work: “My satisfaction is winning the technical and emotional battles encountered in painting a picture which creates a feeling of harmony and optimism. Now I am also looking for a light that reveals the lustre and texture of materials and creates a real space around them. Colour has become more descriptive and less interpretive, light has become more solid.
The goal I have set for myself as an artist is to present and personalise beautiful and inspiring places. Using the painterly qualities of tone and colour, my aim is to interpret the subtleties and nuances of time and place to create lucid and harmonious paintings at home and abroad.”
