Profile

British artist Daniel van der Noon traded in the Thames for a Scandinavian way of life a few years back. Now caught between both Aarhus and Copenhagen, his work has been exhibited in Amsterdam, Shanghai, Aarhus, Copenhagen and Hamburg where he has delivered an array of window drawings, meticulously detailed cityscapes and intriguing pictorial narratives on both paper and canvas for gallery spaces, public institutions and private buyers.

Commenting on his own work, Daniel explains that “I like to travel a lot, visit new cities, see new places, hear new noises. Through these skylines I guess that the perks that I experience from traveling around are amplified in ink, and the memories recorded in these ongoing sprawls of images and text.”

"It's the images that appear in the corner of your eye; those are the ones I pay most attention to. While in the process of drawing mild, peripheral hallucinations occur. Colour combinations appear springing from surrounding objects, works in progress, and other studio paraphernalia to combine into something that can be introduced into my own visual narratives. This would also explain the mess of my studio spaces."

Biography

 

Originally from Birmingham, British artist Daniel van der Noon, started out his career drawing professionally while living in Aarhus, following a year spent in Copenhagen on exchange while studying aesthetics and consciousness. Having already enjoyed an enduring relationship with drawing, and indeed writing, his diverse line-work has been exhibited in Amsterdam, Shanghai, Aarhus, Copenhagen and Hamburg delivering an array of window drawings, meticulously detailed cityscapes and intriguing pictorial narratives - on paper, canvas and found materials - for gallery spaces, public institutions and collectors.

Consumed by the process of drawing - and its innate ability to constantly open up new solutions, aesthetic arrangements and visual reactions to our environment - on paper, anything can be imagined possible; cats can fly, buildings can be erected on the surface of Mars, and a future can be imagined that parallels your own dreams. The more you draw, the more you see. Galaxies of stories are born before your eyes, restricted only by the time you invest in their creation. 

The driving force behind drawing, as a medium, is the determination to seek out new means of image making and inventing new processes. Put short, there is no fixed definition; the field is wiiiiiiiiiiiide open.

Perhaps most at ease in the studio environment - which becomes something of an ecosystem in itself - I find that it's the images that appear in the corner of the eye I pay most attention to. While in the process of drawing mild, peripheral hallucinations occur. Colour combinations spring from surrounding objects, works in progress, and other studio paraphernalia to combine into something that can be introduced into your own visual narrative. The story of creation. This also doubles up as a great explanation for 'mess' or 'chaos' in the spaces I work.
