Noel Myles is an artist who works with the photographic image, extending it beyond the single moment and static viewpoint. He creates collages of images shot in roughly the same location at different times and conditions and creates immense collages that allow a the nature of the nature to come through.
A photograph captures a point in time, but when looking at people or nature that is its most limiting problem. A gust of wind can change the shape and sense of a tree, grasses alter in colour depending on what way they lean, skies change hue and colour over time. Myles work attempts to capture the continuous flow of the act of looking.
I have decided to focus on Myles' landscapes, he creates very complex portrait photographs layering dozens of views of his subject on top of each other, sometimes adding duplicates of certain features like eyes, open, squinting, sparkling - showing their different elements, but these can get overwhelming. His works on nature still have a calmness and tell their own stories.
If you consider an individual image to be like a word, Myles weaves a number of words together on a single page to make poetry through photographs. His shades, colours and angles add texture to the images, create drama, movement, emotion and a narrative.
