Noé Katz, who will be featured in our future exhibition, Two Artists | One Space in April is a nationally and internationally known North Carolina artist. He was born in 1953 in Mexico City, Mexico and studied at the School of Design and Handicrafts of the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes, Mexico City with additional study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy. Katz, whose work has been compared to the masters of Mexican Modernism, is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in both two and three dimensional art forms.

His experience traverses a variety of media such as drawing, painting, sculpture, and mural painting. The artist has produced several major architectural commissions such as the aluminum wall reliefs for the Fiesta Americana Grand Chapultepec building in Mexico City, and the monumental "Kissing Doors" for the Tokoro Museum of Modern Art in Omishima, Japan. Katz's works are in international collections including the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City, and the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California. The exquisite craftsmanship, sinuous lines, and gliding surfaces of Katzs works which combine the figure with objects and landscape communicate sensibilities of openness. For Two Artists | One Space Greenhill will present a selection of Katz's paintings and sculptures and prints.
