Piece description from the artist
Prospect Park in Brooklyn during the late winter. A rollerblader skates past a hill side of trees. I've been trying to fracture the visual field in some recent pieces. Horizon lines obscured by a tangle of trees. Life embedded in the city.
Noel Hefele was born and raised in Norwalk, Connecticut. His love for art grew out of a childhood obsession with comic books, and he currently paints landscapes. Noel is interested in the power of vision and what it means to really see something. To him, landscapes are shared spaces that represent what we have in common; he hopes that by looking at and valuing our environment, we can come to understand our place in this world a bit better.
Noel received his B.F.A. in painting from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a master's degree in arts and ecology from Dartington College of Arts in the United Kingdom. As of 2020, Noel lives and works in the Bronx, New York.
