Paul Noble - Nobson (English)
|Author||Paul Kempers E.a.|
|Publisher||Boijmans Van Beuningen|
The large-scale, surrealistic and highly detailed pencil drawings for which artist Paul Noble is known often depict a strange metropolis he calls Nobson Newtown. Inspired by the flat, grey skies of Whitley Bay and its surroundings, on the northern coast of Great Britain where Noble grew up, this fantastic realm of ruins, countless stones and hidden deities has been evolving for more than seventeen years. It is a place of extremes, an expression of the cartoonish delirium springing from the mind of this 50-year-old kid. The book is published on the occasion of an exhibition of works featuring Nobson at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, assembled like a puzzle by Noble himself.
