Noah Simblist

Page 1 | Biography


My work seeks to question two fundamental poles of painting and drawing practice, identity and the way that it manifests itself within formal investigation. I see identity as a dialectical relationship between the personal and the cultural. In this sense, a sign such as the Jewish star holds both private and public meaning. Its application inside of the grid,an implicit architecture of the rectangle - the body and space of this investigation, becomes a mark, a circumcision that notes both an absence and presence of meaning.

The image above:

"On Forgiveness" 2006 - an installation involving wall text, wall painting, drawings on paper and video. The wall text is excerpted from an essay by Jacques Derrida entitled "On Forgiveness." The drawings involve iconography from three aspects of contemporary Jewish identity, the Holocaust, Zionism and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
