Didier Nolet

For many years my paintings and pastels reflected a blending of my childhood memories.  This became more and more a transcription of my personal inner feelings, state of mind, and moods.

Landscapes are a mirror of myself; the land where I grew up and the land where I am presently living.  Landscapes are also a reflection on human civilization.

My landscapes are dreamlike and put together like stage sets.  They are images whose edges are softened by the layering of time.  They are scenes in which motion is suspended; where the ensuing composition is all important.  The space depicted in the paintings stays enclosed and private while it is swept by a strange, unifying light.

Didier Nolet studied in France at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris. He has shown his work internationally. Didier is an instructor at The Art Center-Highland Park and Moraine Valley Community College.
