Paintings on Canvas
Art Note - Peter Frank, Adjunct Senior Curator | Riverside Art Museum (CA)and Art Critic for The Huffington Post. He is past critic for Angeleno magazine, LA Weekly, and was editor for The Magazine Los Angeles and Visions Art Quarterly.
Concentrating on technology, Lindsey Nobel insists, itself only disconnects us. Implicit in the intricate, elaborate networks and even the simple lines Nobel inscribes upon her various surfaces is this message: If we comprehend our electronic web of communication as part of our larger sensibility rather than as the driving factor of our awareness - or, conversely, as nothing more than one more tool for making money and manipulating one another - we can integrate that web easily into every aspect of our lives without losing our grasp of the universe. Although Nobel's art is handmade, it has been influenced by (and in her sculpture and photography, exploits) her commercial experience with new technologies.
The surrealists, among others, explored a number of techniques Nobel now investigates. The prewar modernists were more suspicious of contemporary technology than she is, and their view of the current human condition was darker, but like them, Nobel wants to find a level of perception through the exploration of visual and sensory experience that opens up Nobel herself and her audience to many levels of experience at once, from the intellectual to the erotic, from the microscopic to the galactic, from the organic to the architectural, from a state of ordinary reality to the dream state, from the recognizable to the purely non-objective.
