Time Travelers, those who have been somewhere else. Paintings by Chris Noel
We are hot-wired to recognize the human face wherever it may appear. In the clouds, in a stone veneer, or in a stain on the carpet. Sometimes these likenesses can seam strikingly realistic but most often a little imagination is needed to make the leap. In this series of paintings Chris Noel brings to life moments of time that are universally recognized expressions of the human experience. Starting with broad strokes of acrylic paint, detail is added to reveal more clearly what, Chris says, “is already there.”
These are the faces, the expressions, the emotions we all encounter on our lifelong journeys through space and time. Though they may not appear to be exactly human at first glance they do inspire an introspective reflection that makes us pause and recognize ourselves in someone else’s pain, pleasure, or indifference.
We are all, in fact, Time Travelers. We have all been somewhere else. Our unique individual journeys have made us all a little bit different, but all of us share a common attraction to the human face and we all can determine the intention of even a most subtle expression.
