Noreen Larinde

Artist Statement

Noreen Larinde is a feminist painter, graphic designer , and a fine art photographer whose images have germinated from two major sources, (1) the Italian Renaissance figurative tradition, which celebrates the rational faculty through the depiction of the human figure totally in command of the self; and (2) the aesthetics of Japanese Zen Buddhism, a knowledge of which she gained from years as an East Asian Professor of Art History. In Zen Noh Theatre, Woman is seen as unknowable through rational processes and can only be glimpsed through the artistic experience, which expresses the interaction between the externals of appearance and the dark, hidden, mysterious inner nature of the self. Hence the images are not narratives, as in Italian paintings, but provocations as in Noh drama, which demand that each viewer project the self and arrive at a personal interpretation.
