Noah Taylor


Already firmly established in the film industry, Noah is now making a strong name for himself in the art world and will be sharing insights into this cross-over at his Sydney presentation.

Noah Taylor (born 1969) has worked in that garish world known as showbiz most of his adult life, best known for his acting roles he has also been making music and painting since his teens but has only been exhibiting his work in the last five years, primarily in the UK.

Noah lives and works on the south coast of England and is the father of a four year old girl, politically and artistically he has been describing himself as a non committed catholic neo situationist. Whatever that means.

"Noah Taylor's haunted portraits stare back at us and we can't help but be touched by their strange, blank beauty." - Nick Cave

Artist's Statement

These images have dogged me all my life and I tend to avoid over analyzing them or any creative endeavor for that matter. I never plan an image but often start with a template background of an isolated landscape that recurs in most of my work, it's an Australian landscape but nowhere in particular

The characters tend to be lonely isolated figures, but their situation is ambiguous, I prefer to keep the work untitled generally so as the viewer can read into it whatever they like.

Religious art and comic books are my two primary sources of inspiration and influence.
