Guy Noble - Large Moon 2007/2009 213cm x 213cm oil on canvas The 'Moon' series came about as a result of the suicide of one of Guy Noble's closest friends... "In 2007 one of my closest friends hanged himself in his studio – I found him about 20 Minutes after. It was one of the most extraordinary events of my life and yet in some peculiar way just another event like tripping over or any other ordinary part of my life. Unlike tripping over I couldn’t go back into the studio and just pick up where I left off the day before. For weeks I looked for a subject that seemed true and right. One night I looked up and there was the moon; completely ordinary yet totally extraordinary. Something we all have a relationship with yet nobody owns.” These paintings and drawings explore the way memory interferes with perception.
