Bilderstreit, A German Requiem

John Noel Smith

4 Sep, 2015 - 20 Dec, 2015

Wexford based artist John Noel Smith spent over twenty years working in Berlin. His painterly abstractions found their voice there amid the tight milieu of a then divided city. Noel Smith has been invited to create two works for the Atrium space at the RHA. He has undertaken two very large canvases and added to this ambition of scale, a poignant lament to his time in Berlin. Entitled Bilderstreit the German word refers to “controversy over image”. Smith’s honed his skill and style in the close-knit community of painters where critique and argument surrounded their work.
