Australian Contemporary Art

Noel Hart

Noel Hart is an Australian artist working across a range of art forms including blown glass sculptures, paintings, and mixed media.  His work is 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 abstractly and figuratively.

“I like wild things. whether wild species, landscapes, the weather, or the arts, I like it when I can sense a nearness to creation, creativity and the evolution of an idea”

Noel has developed a glassblowing technique inspired by the Middle Eastern core-formed glass from 3500 years ago, replacing the dung/clay core with an expandable glass bubble. Working with a team of glassblowers, the basic hot glass bubble is coated with multiple coloured parts that simulate the plumage of bird species in a painterly manner. A variety of minimalist forms are then blown from the hot glass which will either become finished stand alone works, or used in the creation of unique glass collages.
