I'm excited to have my work in the latest Kinblethmont Gallery exhibition, 'The Artist Gathering' is a group show and will open on the 24th of February, running to the 4th of March. The Kinblethmont Gallery is on a beautiful estate 10 minutes drive from Arbroath.

I will be exhibiting old and new paintings and relics in this exhibition, including this piece 'Pine Snags of Mar I', inspired by an old dead pine I met in Glen Derry. This is also one (the left) part of a diptych that started the new melted ink series I've been working on, enjoying the expressive glowing oriental marks against the contrasted dark European etching line. Thoughts of some where in the hanging highland woods of my mind.

Artist in Residence by kyle noble

After a chaotic few weeks of leaving our Auchtermuchty house/studio (I'm moving to China to join my wife, the incredible painter Georgia Rose Murray in March), I am now artist in residence at the Rahoy Hills Nature Reserve for 3 weeks, with plans to return for the summer and autumnal experience. I have now been here for just over one week and I'm in love with the area, the reserve is on the Morven peninsula and feels very remote, I can see Lochaline and Mull through the window of the lovely Ferry Cottage - my home/ studio during the residency. The Atlantic rainforest is my main inquiry, staring into the lichen and moss wrapped boughs of oak, hazel, wych elm and ash. However the reserve also has a large area of wilderness to contemplate between Beinn na Uamha and Beinn Ladain. I would also like to mention that I am eternally grateful to Fife Contemporary for their support which has enabled me to spend an extended period of valuable and peaceful time here. Expect photos  and rambles on my experiences of the mossy woods from the edge of Scotland !
