biography

Kate Noble was a highly creative and versatile painter living and working in Godney, Somerset. She was also the founder of Wells Art Contemporary and oversaw its exciting development for 5 years.
She studied painting at the Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford from 1981–1985 followed by a MA in fine art at Bath Spa University from 2010-2013. Kate was Artist in Residence at the Spoleto Festival between 1990–1994, and then ceased painting until 2010 working instead with textiles. She returned to painting with a portraiture course at the Florence Academy.
Colour was central to Kate’s practice, and she used it to underpin and express the fluid complexities that arise out of the original ideas and form of her paintings. Above all she was determined to show her particular way of seeing – a unique view of the world through the eyes of someone with aberrant vision. She displayed her unique use of colour in vivid, startling depictions of life transforming the familiar into the dramatic whether it’s the everyday world of rural Britain, the hectic, urban bustle of city life or the majestic landscapes of India.
Kate Noble’s work included a series of paintings over three years entitled ‘Putting Godney on the Map’, exhibited at Andelli Art in 2015. She said, “The project continues and increases in excitement as I see even more avenues to explore – landscapes which show the wonderful ordinariness of this Somerset riverside village, with its de-consecrated church, made extraordinary by the weather.”
Her love of portraiture included a series influenced by a visit to Wilhelm Sasnal’s exhibition at Sadie Coles and the works of Goya.
