Noel Coonce-Ewing is an assemblage artist specializing in Steampunk art. Using found-objects, antique ephemera or modern components, Noel stylistically re-imagines and re-invents technical imagery and mechanical aesthetics from the industrial past. Noel creates shadow boxes along with small sculptural pieces made with vintage musical instrument boxes, fruit crates or plinths and adds to them carious found, re-purposed or handmade objects. Her work combines contrasting textures and surfaces, such as work or aged wood with smooth porcelain or oxidized metal. She describes her creative process as eliciting the same excitement as finding broken objects at an archaeological dig and piecing them back together to discover and rediscover history. A selection of Noel's steampunk designs are now available at LBGE.
