Noel Hart setting up his exhibition at Byron’s Lone Goat Gallery last week.

Multi-talented north coast artist Noel Hart works across a range of art forms including blown glass sculptures, paintings and mixed media. He describes his work as ‘an exploration of biodiversity and its translation into forms of expression’.

A distinctive aspect of Noel’s art is the recurring theme of the bird motif presented both abstractly and figuratively.

He’s a particular fan of parrots, their bright plumage providing inspiration for a wide range of works.

A solo exhibition of Noel’s glass sculpture and paintings is currently on display at the Lone Goat Gallery, in the new Byron Bay Library Building.

It is his first local exhibition in 20 years, following on from solo exhibitions in London, San Francisco, Santa Fe and Denver.

The exhibition continues until Wednesday 5 February.
