Alastair Noble

Alastair Noble, born in Liverpool, England has lived and worked in New York City for over 30 years. He is an environmental/installation artist and printmaker and has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally including Italy, Peru, Chile, Bulgaria and the UK. His artistic practice is a response to architecture and the natural environment, and reflects on particular sites in the context of poetry and literature. These texts are transposed into drawings, prints, sculptures, installations and interventions in the landscape. The writings of Mallarmé, Marinetti, Mayakovsky, Wittgenstein, Nietzsche, Poe and Daumal have been the genesis of numerous works. The short story by Argentine author Borges "On the Exactitude in Science" has been the catalyst for recent projects entitled Mapping Arcadia and a Topography of Place, an on-going series of environmental projects that he has evolved to investigate an alternative means to map the landscape.

Periodically, he writes on sculpture and architecture for art journals, magazines and catalogues. Additionally, he curates and organizes exhibitions that complement his own research, most recently Footnotes: A Sensation of Sound (2015) at Apex Gallery, which was reviewed in The New York Times by Holland Cotter. Over the years he has taught and lectured at numerous colleges, universities and public institutions.
