Artist Philip Noyed is forging a bold new direction in expressionist art
Bright colors and distinctive forms leap off the canvas in a dynamic orchestration of energy and texture. You find yourself caught in high voltage compositions - pulled in by the extraordinary range of mood and character. Then, you discover the story behind the work, the idea that is explored.
Each painting is a revelation of the human spirit. A powerful modern Mandala that reveals more to you the longer you spend with the work. Signs and symbols abound in a complex dance of action and reaction. More >
I create colorful action abstraction paintings. My work is an exploration of the expressive power of gesture in form and line on a stage of converging planes. Much of the work is about pushing limits and liberation. Like dancers, figures are often in motion - action and reacting in concert with other figures and shapes.
Ch'i energy forms the unifying element of the work. In essence, all areas of the canvas - form, color, plane and brush stroke - are dynamic Ch'i energy fields. I want my paintings to be vital, active and alive.
Each of the paintings is constructed in the manner of musical composition with themes and counter themes that work on a structural visual basis. The paintings explore broad topics of science, religion, musicality, dance, yoga, meditation and emotion in the way of symbolist visual poetry.
