Greg Noblin holds a BFA in photography from The Art Institute of Atlanta.
He spent his youth a daydreamer with a wild imagination. Feeling he had lost some of the whimsical freedom of childhood, he began an exploration the impossibilities of his daydreams. The resulting artwork is like a bridge between childhood fantasy and adult “reality.”
Noblin first collects and scans his imagery, then digitally cuts it up, and finally rearranges the pieces until he is pleased with the result. He regards the finished collages as a meaningful connection made to a childhood memories.
Using textures in the images helps triggers tactile senses. ‘These images send me to a far out place where I can escape reality for a while and be a child again. They allow me to travel where there are no rules and anything can happen,’ he says.
His work has been exhibited across Georgia and he has won several student prizes.
