Nancy Noe

1974 , Indonesia

Nancy Noe (b. 1974, Indonesia) is a self-taught artist who loves to work with her hands and make things. She works mainly with paper and clay. Two of the most humble materials that never fail to impress her. In her hands they possess limitless possibilities as she transformed them into whimsical things. Her work is always a celebration for creativity and the power of imagination. She likes to create objects that allow people to have a moment to cheer up, a moment to wonder and connect with their own imagination through the visual stories she presented. 

Artist Statement

These three are among my recent favourites. They represent the correlation conflict in every way possible. Each one appears soft and demure but not fragile.

Hummingbirds and Roses – shows boldly how nature works.
Eve – is a reflection of emptiness and richness as a whole. Eve symbolises the unseen beauties and qualities which often remain unseen or overlooked by expectations and or cultures.
A Flowering Mind – contains the invisible strength. Head in the clouds, what’s in your mind has a power.
