About Noam Rappaport

Teetering between painting and sculpture, New York-based artist Noam Rappaport’s hybrid open-form objects take on a character of their own. Through the use of commonplace materials, such as stretcher bars, nails, screws, and wiring, Rappaport’s art approaches formalism through a decidedly informal process. His traditionally painted works on irregularly contoured and shaped canvases invoke the art of post-minimalist artist Richard Tuttle. In spite of the casual presence of Rappaport’s work, its sense of order suggests an assured clarity of both thought and method that underscores the works’ hybrid identity.

Swedish, b. 1974
