ABOUT JOSEPHR NODERER: For the past eight years Joseph Noderer has painted his newest body of work isolated from the contemporary art scene. After receiving his MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he lived in Chicago, Illinois and Austin, Texas before the pull of his familiar childhood landscape found him moving back to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and back to a connection with his roots. It is these roots, connections, typography of the land, memories of time and space, and more that is sensitively rendered in each of the paintings exhibited in The Old Same Place opening May 15, 2022, at the Riverside Art Center, Riverside, Illinois.
Throughout these years Noderer quietly worked from a small bedroom studio, pondering the importance of connection: connection to ourselves, our family, our neighbors, along with our connection to nature, time, and place. Using a limited palette of colors that referenced what he could see from his studio window, on his way to work, or walking in a nearby park, Noderer intuitively constructs snippets of a memory, seamlessly yet ambiguously. It is the tension between the specificity and ambiguity of place that opens up the work to be relatable to a global audience. ###
