STATEMENT BY NOAH ERENBERG

I have been an artist since 1990. I paint and draw because it makes me feel wonderful. I like to work outside and look around my neighborhood at the trees, the ocean and the surfers, I have a studio in my house and my artist friends come over and inspire me to make art, They make me happy that I am an artist. With every good painting and drawing I make, I become a better artist.

My favorite colors are red, blue and pink. I like to paint abstract paintings because I like bright colors and crazy shapes. Abstract painting reminds me of hip hop music. The abstract shapes come out of my head. Abstract means "from my head". I like to make text drawings. I copy words from magazines, CDs, posters and newspapers. I use ball point pens, felt tip pens and colored pencils to make my drawings.

I was invited to join an international exhibition of visionary art called INTERNAL GUIDANCE SYSTEMS. This show traveled to many galleries around the world from 2006 to 2008. The curators were Colin Rhodes from Great Britain and Anne Grgich from Portland, Oregon.

"Noah Erenberg is actively building a vocabulary to express the world around him in his own terms. Built up with curious, startling and subtle color combinations and a range of gestural marks, Erenberg re-creates the sights and sounds of Isla Vista, California with an affecting freedom from convention."
