Ye Olde Ruin (One)
399472–001

Installation is sized, priced and produced on a project-specific basis.

Since 1995, London-based artist Paul Noble has been engaged in a monumental project to meticulously depict a fictional city, Nobson Newtown. Using pencil on paper, Noble draws wall-sized, fantastic aerial perspectives. Described by the artist as an "exercise in self-portraiture via town planning," the city is unpopulated and the buildings, upon close inspection, are revealed to be three-dimensional letters; Noble based "Nobfont" on the forms of modernist architecture. Ye Olde Ruin (One) expands upon a small section of a larger drawing by the same name, spelling out an excerpt from the epic Persian poem, the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
