Piece description from the artist
I've taught myself how to draw and paint. When I was a kid I would trace cartoon characters on a light up tracing machine my parents got me. Years later when I was in my early 20s I decided to start painting. I showed at a gallery in Deep Ellum called Vincent's Ear. They soon closed down and I didn't seek any other gallery shows.
Skip Noah's artwork explores the world of dreams, symbolism, mythology, various religious belief systems, the human condition and our shared collective consciousness with all sentient beings. His artwork is also strongly influenced by personal stories, events from life painted on canvas, filtered through a process of organic abstraction and emotion, and built with vivid color and esoteric symbols.
The overall concept of Noah's paintings and sculptures comes to him instantaneously. He will jot the artwork down on a small piece of paper, and then recreate the artwork anywhere from a few days to years later. He believes it is the unconscious mind that creates these paintings, or taps into a source. Skip states he will learn a lot about himself and the world from looking at the finished artwork.
