Noel Arrigan is a multi - media artist working out of Galway. His sculpture based practice includes live performance, installation, photography and manipulating found objects. His recent work investigates the continuous veneration and identity of wells through Irish history. He explores elements such as distillation and transubstantiation of water and belief.

“Through distilling I noticed that the evaporating steam can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and the pores of the skin. By interacting with this steam I am questioning the healing powers of the spiritual wells of Ireland,”

Noel is the current chairperson of Forge Clay Studio, Galway and a recent board member of 126 Gallery Galway. He has completed public art commissions including ‘Things to live by’ a collaborative contemporary art project between Croi na Gaillimhe – St. Vincent de Paul and Forge Clay Studios, 2013.
