“Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye….it also includes the inner pictures of the soul” Edvard Munch
Terence Noble is a painter inspired by colours, rhythms and motifs found in nature which serve to make memories, thoughts and emotions visible.
Born in The New Forest, Hampshire in 1974 Terence grew up with an intrinsic relationship to nature and was a technically gifted student.
In 1997 Terence graduated from Reading University with a BA Hons in Fine Art studying under Constructivist Terry Pope, Art Historian Roger Cook and was a contemporary of film director Peter Strickland.
An early interest in urban graffiti art might seem at odds with the natural world though it was the organic spirit and rhythmic stylings of New York Wildstyle that excited him.
Moving to Cornwall in 1999 he quickly merged into the music scene and Buttwild Collective. Here he was able to showcase murals and promotional artwork alongside renowned DJ’s such as The Scratch Perverts and Stanton Warriors.
Terence returned to The New Forest in 2010 and in 2016, following revelatory experiences in his personal life, turned back to nature to develop a new contemplative approach to painting that is capable of combining internal and external experiences.
