You’ve got just a few more weeks to catch Noah Da Costa’s new show Concrete at the Gallery at NUA. Noah is the son of the painter Caroline Hoskin and grandson of the St.Ives sculptor John Hoskin. He studied at NUA when we were known as NSAD (1988-90) before commencing a successful career as a commercial photographer.
Represented by Tom Rowland Fine Art, this is Noah’s first major show in Norwich. It brings together a large number of his large format monochrome images, all derived from photographs of Denys Lasdun’s National Theatre or University of East Anglia (the campus of which was Noah’s home for a period as a child). While the main body of the exhibition consists of Noah’s large, square prints, the second room of the exhibition is a collection of newer, smaller and variously sized colour pieces.
In addition to the work itself, the gallery has a limited number of boxed prints available for sale, and two catalogues for the special exhibition price of £5 each. One of these features a foreword by myself, but the photos more than make up for it.
