The Art Portfolio of Painter Noah Verrier

Painter Noah Verrier has been creating art since childhood, taking a contemplative, meditative approach to much of his work. The artist has worked on large series spanning numerous pieces, but his painting style also shines in quietly masterful still-life and other works made from observation.

In Noah’s gallery of recent works, the artist shows off paintings of food and other common materials. The everyday subject matter and simple compositions invoke an instant sense of connection in the viewer. Noah does a wonderful job of capturing the shine of glass or freshly-spread jam. His brush strokes emulate the play of light on different angles of the material, achieving both realistic detail and a slightly loose, painterly aesthetic.

Some of these works reminds me of the sumptuous food paintings of Joel Penkman or even Michelle Marcotte, in their pure, unbiased appreciation for the simple texture of a cantaloupe, or a pile of warm fried rice in a Chinese takeout container.
