Noah Taylor | The Age

Philippa Hawker of The Age talks with Olsen Irwin artist Noah Taylor about his acting career and creative releases.

“An old friend, Claudia Karvan, brought his work to the attention of Olsen Irwin: at a recent Sydney opening, she talked about Taylor as a compulsively expressive person, ‘the most original, honest, subversive mind I’ve come across’. ” – Philippa Hawker, The Age

“He works in oils and ink on paper and talks of religious art and comic books as his primary influences. Right now, Taylor says, ‘I’m more serious about the painting, and I would like to take it further’. This means working more and showing more. ‘You learn way more from that than just keeping it at home: there’s something that forces you to look at it with a more critical eye when you take it to the public.'” – Philippa Hawker, The Age

Noah Taylor | New Works | Exhibition Opening

Claudia Karvan kindly opened Noah Taylor’s exhibition ‘New Works‘ at Olsen Irwin Works on Paper, Small Paintings and Sculpture on Saturday 7 June 2014. Due to Taylor’s acting commitments in the UK, he was unfortunately unable to attend the opening of the exhibition, instead asking childhood friend Karvan to step in. It was Karvan who initially introduced Taylor’s work to Olsen Irwin director, Tim Olsen, making her the obvious choice to open the exhibition. Watch Karvan’s speech and scenes from the opening in the video above.

Noah Taylor | New Works

Noah Taylor discussing his highly successful exhibition with Olsen Irwin in Jan 2013. Taylor describes his works as “… little frozen scenes from a story.” – Noah Taylor

By drawing from the subconscious, Taylor allows his brush to intuitively form bizarre and unsettling narratives. Taylor’s works, although seemingly simple, leave a vivid, complex and – most certainly – a lasting impression.

Taylor’s new works on paper will be exhibited in the Olsen Irwin Works on Paper, Small Paintings and Sculpture Gallery from 4 – 21 June 2014. The exhibition will be opened by Claudia Karvan on Saturday 7 June 2 – 4pm.
