Noel Hart
BIO

Noel Hart graduated from the Gordon Institute of Technology in Fine Art in 1975, and after a diverse career in graphics, construction and teaching has gone on to have a prolific professional artistic career, recognized in Australia and the USA.

Hart conceived and established Back to Back Theatre (one of Australia's leading contemporary theatre companies) in 1986 with grants from the Australia Council and various philanthropic foundations. Back to Back Theatre stemmed from Hart's interest in Outsider Art and creativity beyond the mainstream.

Since moving to the Byron Shire in 1988, Hart's creative output has included sculptures in blown glass and other materials, and abstract and figurative paintings with a variety of aesthetic approaches. The themes of his work move in cycles and includes references to his interests in primitivism and natural history.

Selected solo exhibitions include Parrotesque at the Jane Sauer Gallery in Santa Fe, NM, USA and Harrison Galleries in Sydney, Psittaculture at the Tweed River Art Gallery and Compositions Gallery in San Francisco, and Parrotism at COSA Gallery in London and PISMO in Denver.

Group exhibitions include FLUX at the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, Glass Concepts at Lehigh University Art Gallery in Bethlehem, PA, USA, SOFA New York and SOFA Chicago with Jane Sauer Gallery, Palm Beach 3 with Habatat Galleries, Boca Raton FL. USA.

He has private collections in Australia, UK, France, Spain, Hong Kong, NZ, USA, Canada, Singapore, Japan, Germany and Ireland. He has corporate collection in Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong, Fujifilm in Tokyo and Mitsubishi Corporation in Australia.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Noel Hart is an Australian Artist who blurs the boundaries between conceptual abstract painting, avian art, and the contemporary studio glass movement with a narrative drawing on literature, natural history, art culture and hereditary memory.

His recent paintings and blown glass objects throw lures via engaging translucent surfaces that draw the viewer to question their meaning, which can be seen as falling somewhere between an excitement about the possibilities of biodiversity, evolutionary biology, creativity, and an inquiry into the human condition.
