This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for the vibrant colors in his landscape paintings, Marshall Noice combines pastel painting with an expressive color palette and defies the perception that pastel is a more subdued art form than oils and acrylics. He also paints in oils.

Noice spent many years as a landscape photographer and then switched to painting. During the summer of 1977 he worked as Ansel Adams' workshop assistant. Many of his scenes are from Montana, Colorado and New Mexico.

Noice's studio is located in the back of what was the Silver Dollar Saloon built in 1899. The ceilings are pressed tin which reflect the paintings on the wall.

Biography from Altamira Fine Art:
Marshall Noice
b. 1952

Marshall Noice came to painting after successfully answering two other artistic callings – music and photography.  Even though his mother and uncle had backgrounds in the visual arts, music was his first love and consequently his first career.  As a drummer in a rock band, he toured for four years and opened for acts such as the Allman Brothers Band, Cheap Trick, and Tower of Power.   Leaving the band because of artistic differences, he moved to Montana where he became fascinated by the photography of Paul Strand, Edward Weston, and Ansel Adams.

This fascination led him to his second career -- that of a professional photographer with a specific niche in photographing art.  His work gained prominence, and in 1977 he accepted a position as assistant to legendary photographer, Ansel Adams. As opposed to his aggressive use of color in his paintings today, Noice’s photography was limited to black and white.

Inspired by the highly textured paintings of Theodore Waddell, Noice turned his attention to painting in 1989. He began by painting 100 canvases of Blackfeet artifacts on which he experimented with color and perspective. According to Noice, “After those 100 paintings, I’d found what I was looking for in terms of an art process. Color doesn’t trump composition in my work. They’re pretty much on equal footing.”

The technical term for the way he combines dissonant and complementary colors to create tension is “analogous color harmony”. Noice works in both oil and pastel and generally paints with pastels en plein air. In his mind, “The fundamental benefit of working on location is having immediate contact with my subject matter. I need to feel it, to taste it, to experience it. There’s no substitute for that. I respond to the landscape on a subliminal level and what I want to show in my paintings are those sublime aspects that I experience in nature.”
