150 Sunsets: Paintings by Noah Verrier

Noah Verrier spent a year painting sunsets in the same spot – 150 sunsets, to be exact. These paintings, available for viewing on his website, as well as for purchase in the form of a book, reflect the changing of the seasons, and the movement of the sun from season to season and provide a unique meditation on the passage of time as seen from a single point in space.

 

When installed, Noah’s 150 paintings are carefully arranged in a grid along the walls of the gallery space, providing a meditative, calm viewing experience.

It is of great interest to read Noah’s explanation of how he came to begin working on his 150 sunsets. Much of Noah’s practice comes from a spiritual, metaphysical place, and the sunsets follow this formula of divine artistic calling. The paintings speak for themselves, with heavy, loose brush marks, and the beautiful, fiery orange tones of the sun in those instances when it can be seen peeking over the horizon.
