Michael Noland's paintings are based on traditional American scenes that are molded to his unique vision. Noland creates vitality though exaggeration in form, repetition of line and saturation of color. Common views and unique animals seem both darkly surreal and amusing. Flowers pulsate with life and colors reverberate with an electric charge. The artist has enjoyed over ten museum exhibitions across the country and is an NEA fellowship recipient.
"Growing up in the area of Oklahoma, known as Tornado Alley, gave me a healthy love and respect for the power and beauty of nature. I grew up where the landscape and sky were very much a part of my everyday life. To this day I have a healthy respect of nature’s power and beauty. I hope that this love and respect comes through in these paintings." - Michael Noland
