Artist in Focus: Noel Hart

‘Art Objects can be designed to express and connect to the sublime, the transcendental, the most powerful forces and instincts that animate human existence.

‘The objective of my work has been to interpret the idea of “power objects”, linking the primitive to the contemporary around an interest in biodiversity and extinction, and a symbolic intervention between the two.

‘My practice generally revolves around painting and blown glass, which in turn are related by the connecting threads of process and obsessions.’

– Noel Hart

Noel Hart is represented by galleries in the USA, Europe, and Australia.

The gallery and studio will be open 10am–2pm Monday–Wednesday and Friday throughout January, or by appointment.
