Adam Collier Noel often draws his inspiration from his extensive archive of found photographs, which he selects based on their ability to demonstrate both intimate and universal elements of human experience. Building on the history of the image he repurposes imagery of the past in order to transcend time, especially in an age where the Internet has led to the constant creation of new imagery.
Adam Collier Noel’s paper-based collage work combines both technological and traditional process. He layers found images with blueprints, letters, receipts and book pages as a way of reflecting the importance of paper as a transcript of human history. He has also begun to experiment with abstraction exploring colour theory but maintaining the grid-like organization that is found throughout his work.
Adam Collier Noel’s artwork has been included in Scope Art Miami, Art Palm Beach and Art Palm Springs and private collections in the US, Europe, South America and Australia.
