About

Terence La Noue was born in Hammond, Indiana in 1941. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ohio Wesleyan University in 1964. After going to Berlin as a Fulbright Meister Student at Hochscule fur Bildende Kunste in 1964-65 he went on to receive a Master of Fine Arts degree from Cornell University. In addition to the Fulbright Foundation fellowship, La Noue has twice received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation. He has had extensive teaching experience at Trinity College 1967-72, the City University of New York 1972-85 and at New York University in 1987. He lives between Arizona, Paris, France and Vermont. Terence La Noue, who has created powerful, compelling paintings for the last four decades, is considered one of the outstanding talents of 20th century American abstract art. Layering canvas, fabric, gauze, acrylic paint and cast elements forming a lively melding of many different materials, symbols and colors to create tapestry-like paintings, he conjures up colorfully rich abstractions that reveal a sense of myth, magic and mystery. His extensive world travels serve as inspiration for works that are abstract mixtures of Western and non-Western traditions and histories. India, South America, Morocco, Mexico and Nepal have been favorite destinations. He showed at Andre Emmerich Gallery in New York. Terence La Noue’s unique approach to painting and printmaking has achieved worldwide recognition. Beginning in Berlin in 1965 he has had over a hundred and thirty acclaimed solo exhibitions in London, Paris, Tehran, Stockholm, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Cologne, New York, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Palm Beach, Dallas, Atlanta, Tucson and Scottsdale. His work is represented in the permanent collections of major museums including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of Art, the Corcoran Gallery, the Guggenheim Museum, the Tate Modern in London and others in Japan, Singapore, France and Australia including the Center for Contemporary Art, Kitakyushu, Japan, the Power Institute of Fine Arts, Sydney, Australia, and the Musee d'Art et Archeologie, Paris, France. His work is also included in numerous university and city art museums throughout the US as well as major corporate collections. Terence la Noue worked extensively at Tyler Graphics from 1987 to 1993 and is represented in the National Gallery’s Kenneth Tyler Collection by a large body of work made in 1987 and 1991. He was born in Indiana in 1941 and trained at the Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware and the Hochschule für Bildende Kunst in Berlin. La Noue’s work is characterized by an intensive layering process, which was well accommodated by the Tyler workshop. The artist found that through collaboration with Ken Tyler and workshop staff he could achieve the heavily textured effects of his paintings in print. The works draw upon themes and symbols from la Noue’s wide travels, recalling African masks, Mexican weaving, and motifs from India, Nepal and Central America. "Kenneth Tyler: The Art of Collaboration" sponsored by the Sam Francis Foundation, offers an intimate view into Tyler's visionary partnerships with Josef Albers, Helen Frankenthaler, David Hockney, Terence La Noue, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, John Newman, Steven Sorman, Frank Stella and John Walker. Terence La Noue’s exhibitions have attracted the attention of some of the most significant writers and critics of the time. An extensive monograph entitled Terence La Noue by the renowned critic and art historian Dore Ashton relates his travels, influences and life’s work. He currently lives and works in Arizona, Vermont and Paris. Terence La Noue, who has created powerful, compelling paintings for the last four decades, is considered one of the outstanding talents of 20th century American abstract art. Layering canvas, fabric, acrylic paint and cast elements to create tapestry-like paintings, he conjures up colorfully rich abstractions that reveal a sense of myth, magic and mystery. Elaborate cast reliefs of layers of acrylic paint, formed in sculpture molds and then merged with canvases.Inspired by his many travels around the world, including Africa, Morocco, India, Nepal, Mexico and Central America, La Noue references past and present cultures, melding the abstract traditions of the past with Western ideals. Through the complex use of color, line and texture, La Noue creates abstracted meditations about his travels, philosophies and observations about life that imply universalities, connecting with the viewer on a primordial level. Terence La Noue’s exhibitions have been reviewed by some of the most significant critics of our time.
