Noel has exhibited widely in New Zealand, The UK, Japan and Australia. Noel has been Head of the Fine Arts Department at Whitecliffe since 2002 and has taught at Whitecliffe since 1995. He is particularly interested in curriculum development and has been an external examiner and monitor for a number of tertiary institutions in New Zealand.
Noel’s art practice has consistently focused on an investigation of the structures and supports on which paintings are made and presented as well as ongoing dialogue around the three dimensionality of painting. Works are manufactured in ways that explore the relationship between gesture and control and how paint can be applied and removed from a work using utilitarian methods. He has a particular interest in how paintings are stored and transported and how the means of their transportation might be an active visual and conceptual element.
