The cicada in Mike Noland‘s new painting “Under a Cicada Moon” does not actually vibrate, but one can sense the energy of its tymbals under the diaphanous wings. Noland uses bold color and repetitive, tight brush strokes to suggest the power of the natural world. As Mike says, “Growing up in the area known as “Tornado Alley”, gave me a healthy love and respect for the power and beauty of nature.” Michael Noland‘s paintings inform the viewer through intense patterns, controlled composition, and wondrous colors, of mother nature’s powerful essences, whether they be beautiful or dangerous. New paintings by Mike Noland will be on view at , April 29th through May 2nd. Mike Noland is also preparing for an exhibition of his work in the gallery planned for the fall of 2012.
