Alastair Noble is an environmental/installation artist and printmaker from the UK that has lived and worked in New York City for over 30 years. He has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally including Peru, Chile, Bulgaria and the UK. His artistic practice is a response to architecture and the natural environment, and often reflects on particular sites in the context of poetry and literature. The writings of Mallarmé, Marinetti, Mayakovsky, Wittgenstein, Poe and Daumal have been the genesis of numerous works. The short story by Argentine author Borges On the Exactitude in Science has been the catalyst for recent projects entitled Mapping Arcadia and a Topography of Place – an on-going series of environmental sculptural projects that I have evolved to investigate an alternative means to map the landscape.
Periodically, he writes on sculpture and architecture for international sculpture magazines and journals. Additionally, he curates and organizes exhibitions that complement his own research. He has taught and lectured at numerous colleges, universities and public institutions.
