Adam Collier Noel is an American photographer and collage artist who currently resides in South Florida. He graduated in 2002 with a BFA in photography from Herron School of Art and Design, Indiana University.
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 the 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 color theory but maintaining the grid-like composition that is found throughout his work.
Adam Collier Noel has exhibited his work widely across the USA including South Florida, California, Midwest, and East Coast. He has shown his work at several art fairs including Scope Art Miami, Art Palm Beach and Palm Springs Fine Art Fair. His work features in numerous private collections in the US, Europe, South America and Australia.
