The ideas for her works arise from the triggers of something that attracted Noara, be it aesthetics, poetry, emotional, political, conceptual charge. It can come from a text, conversation, image or an experience, which form the desire to create and make you understand what you need to make your idea come true. At other times, the work begins with experiments in materials that the artist establishes a link with, generating experiments in her studio that are less predictable, dependent on the action of the material, on random circumstances and on each micro decision made in view of the results.
