Barbara Noah is a hybrid works artist currently making pigment prints for Likely Stories, a series of alternate realities alluding to the long shot and the cultural belief that salvation, illumination, or transcendence might be found in the sky. Suggesting dichotomies between near and far, aspiration and realization, and the ridiculous and sublime, this series is wryly reflective of the humor and pathos of the desire for human achievement.
Barbara has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in such venues as the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, the Shenzhen Art Institute Gallery in China, and the Biennial Exhibition of La Jeune Gravure Contemporaine-Paris. She is represented in public and private collections, including the Seattle Art Museum, the UCLA Grunewald Print Collection, Microsoft Corporation, and the Jon and Mary Shirley Collection. She is also the recipient of the Artist Trust Twining Humber Award for Artistic Achievement and a Pollock/Krasner Grant.
