Noe describes his series of colorful assemblages as follows:
Each work represents abstracted imagery drawn from my experiences of working on farms. While harvesting, I meditated on form and color, taking inspiration from the brilliant contrast of the plants to the surrounding earth. Being connected to nature is equal to an artist’s connection to their work. While harvesting I am on the ground– this parallels my studio practice, where I often work on the floor. This similarity significantly coincides with my belief that paintings are grown as an accumulation of many images, textures, and intents. My painting can be a nourishing experience for viewer and creator, much like food; these works reflect such narrative. These themes allow us to consider color as a multi-sensory experience, where the formal characteristics of color can be interpreted beyond the two-dimensional surface.
