From visionary artist Alex Noble comes his first solo exhibition; Creatures from the Kaleidoscope. The highly anticipated art and fashion-fused exhibition will display Noble’s visceral aesthetic as he unveils an immersive mixed media landscape taking the spectator deeper into the visual forms of his world.The exhibition began when Noble collaborated with three female musicians and performers who acted as muses for his Mannequink project, shot by photographer Joe McGorty.

The results have since taken on a three-dimensional form and will act as a monochromatic introduction to the exhibition. The Kaleidoscopic journey will then take heed from its idea and transgress into a spectrum of color, shape and female form; culminating into a sensory ‘exit’.The physicality of the exhibition will take the form of large mixed media works, sculpture, installation, set pieces, film, performance and photography.Exploring pattern, colour and their relationship through refracted and carefully thought out composition, Noble’s works become iconographic in their immense entirety.

Taking inspiration from tropes of spirituality, science fiction, art deco and consumerism
the works are reminiscent of oversized stain glass windows, large mosaics and
rich motifs similar to religious Hindu imagery.
The female forms are then paired with these patterns and shapes then abstracted through
habitats and objects, producing works ambiguous to a specific past or future; like thresholds
into parallel realities. The film Colour Therapy shot by Joost Vanderbrug will also greet the spectators
in the exhibition. An abstract performance film about the power of colour and
the life it breathes into the subjects of the film. Noble’s acclaimed illustration, sets and fashion design will also be on display, allowing
the spectator to better understand his intersections between fashion and contemporary
art through this seminal show.
