Doron Noyman paints and creates mixed media works that are both abstract and representational and respond to the interpersonal and societal dynamics within a city. His works have been exhibited at Google, the Triton Museum of Art among other locations in the San Francisco Bay Area and collected by people both in the United States and other countries. Doron Noyman is a grant recipient for an artist residency in France for June 2018. Noyman lives and works in Palo Alto, California.
My work focuses on the interpersonal and on communities. I weave together stories and observations from my life and from the lives of people around me, mixing in reference points to the past, present, and future. I like observing city life and the people who live there. I am interested in what people think about and how they interact together. I am interested in the layering and connection of varying vantage points, from divergent time periods, from old and young, rich and poor, happy and sad. I am interested in the forces that inspire movement through obstacles and countervailing influences, and how the past and present come together to inform the future. I like the world of abstraction because it allows me to work intuitively in exploration of a question or issue. It allows me to work in a non-linear way to pursue connections and truths that I would not be able to otherwise make. I start with a basic inquiry, an idea or spark of an idea that interests me and work intuitively until the artwork feels complete. In more recent work, I have introduced representational form as it allows me to better confront concepts rather than reflect them. I am excited to see where this new inquiry will take me. Painting is my primary medium but my work also includes original poetry, mixed media collage and assemblage of everyday objects. Influences include Robert Rauschenberg, Joan Miró, Philip Guston, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Hans Hofmann, Willem de Kooning, Joan Mitchell, and Franz Kline, to name just a few. Many thanks for looking!

Wow, am I excited! Lots of great things are coming up this year. First, I am kicking off 2 solo exhibitions starting in April. Then, this summer I will be attending an Art Residency at Chateau Orquevaux in the Champagne region of France. So grateful for the grant that is making this journey possible! There is so much to do to prepare for both the exhibits and the residency. Looking forward to making the most of this opportunity and to it being as productive and fruitful as possible. Will keep you updated on my creative journey.
