In A Neo Situationist Situation

Claudia Karvan
Noah & partner Dionne Harris
Actor Noah Taylor has been in showbiz most of his adult life, best known for his acting roles he has also been making music and painting since his teens but has only been exhibiting his work in the last five years, primarily in the UK.

Noah lives and works on the south coast of England and is the father of a four year old girl, politically and artistically he has been describing himself as a non committed catholic neo situationist.. Whatever that means

His latest exhibtion was at the Tim Olsen Gallery in Woollohara.

Says Noah   :"These images have dogged me all my life and I tend to avoid over analyzing  them or any creative endeavor for that matter. I never plan an image but often start with a template background of an isolated landscape that recurs in most of my work, it's an Australian landscape but nowhere in particular
The characters tend to be lonely isolated figures, but their situation is ambiguous, I prefer to keep the work untitled generally so as the viewer can read into it whatever they like. Religious art and comic books are my two primary sources of inspiration and influence
 The show was a sell-out  so it seems neo situationism is all the rage. fellow actors and pals Jack Thompson and Claudia Karvan were on hand to lend support.
