He works with found materials used in construction, using terracotta bricks, nails, and wood fragments to create sculptures and installations that address the complexities of maintaining balance, from personal to social to economic. Noé explores the fragility, the precariousness in things, nature, and systems and how the forces of pressure and stress remain in or produce balance. He is an alumnus of LAMusArt; he received a BFA from Otis College of Art and studied at Instituto Cabañas in Guadalajara, Mexico. He has exhibited at The University of Memphis Art Museum and a public installation for The City of Alhambra, CA. In New York, PRPG Galeria and Clavó Movimiento, in Mexico City amongst others.
