Nöel lives in the city of Córdoba and traveled to Buenos Aires in order to carry out a Micro-residence to deepen her work on her series Relatos en Transparencias.
Academically trained at the University of Córdoba, Loeschbor has also incorporated throughout the years several artistic skills from different disciplines. In her creative process she uses papers and fabrics and explores unconventional materials. Interested in working on textiles and malleable materials to later tear, twist, sew and paste, Loeschbor creates stories that have to do with the feminine world. She proposes an intimate creative game where the viewer is invited to get lost and explore through its multiple layers of overlapping stories.
Nöel ventured into waterless photolithography, a planographic technique, experimenting and printing on different materials and through his playful process built his work.
It is about experiencing the infinite possibilities of reproducing engraving techniques on different textile supports, where the characteristics of the textures, transparencies and colors magnify and diversify the results obtained, but which at the same time are enhanced with the malleability of the support, enabling actions like, twisting, warping, stretching, overlapping, ripping, baking, etc.
The materialization of the matrix has a special study, first understanding that the technique of woodcut on canvas makes it possible to use various materials that essentially exalt the game of sought textures. To this is added the conception of the matrix as an organism composed of several parts that playing, combining and selecting varied compositional effects are achieved that multiply and mobilize the static image of traditional engraving.
Years after completing the micro-residence, Noël Loeschbor was invited to present his project Recorded Stories at Espacio MODOS. More about the exhibition here

Cycles @ Bs As
By the Law of Periodical Repetition, everything which has happened once must happen again and again and again-and not capriciously, but at regular periods, and each thing in its own period, not another’s, and each obeying its own law…the same Nature which delights in periodical repetition in the skies is the Nature which orders the affairs of the earth. Let us not underrate the value of that hint.
For the first ’aceNITE of the year, named Memory, an International Project developed during 2014 with the participation of 25 artists from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Spain, USA and New Zealand, called Cycles, was exhibited.
Cycles was an initiative through which we were able to make spaces available for work in print media to be created, as well as spaces for the interaction among artists from different nationalities. Each of the participants created a print inspired in the idea of [cycles] from their own multiple perspectives, alluding to the idea of movement, rotation, beginning and end, of mythical return of what was and ended, what opens and closed or what is repeated indefinitely leading to multiple visual interpretations.
After this project, 28 portfolios had been made, were 25 of them were donated to the artists, and the rest, were donated to two public collections at Frogman´s Print Workshop in the USA and the Talleres Nacionales de Gráfica in Mexico, as well one portfolio is part of the Fundación ´ace Art Archives.

Cycles | Ciclos
[CYCLES] Portfolio exchange – Caja Gráfica is an initiative that seeks to open spaces for the creation of graphic work, the interaction of artists of all nationalities with our neighborhood, the opening of places for exhibition and dissemination of work as well as interact with international artists. In this way [CYCLES] proposes the creation of a graphic portfolio-box with engravings / graphic pieces of each one of the participating artists and guests and offers the opportunity to exhibit that work both in Argentina and abroad.
The selected artists developed a one-week micro residency to develop their work in the Foundation’s ´ace workshop. Each of the artists will have a portfolio box with the work of all the participants at the end of the project. The works carried out and the box-portfolio will be exhibited at the Foundation in 2014. Some boxes will be donated to international collections and will start a traveling exhibition.
For the Royal Spanish Academy [cycle] it is a period of history that is considered finished, the set of phenomena or operations that are repeated in an orderly manner, a group of epic traditions concerning a certain period of time or a series of phases through which a periodic phenomenon happens. On the other hand, the prefix “cycle” means “spins”, “spins”.
All disciplines, from anthropology to engineering, have cycles. As well as the cycles appear as processes that always follow the same phases in the same order. In this project we are inspired by the idea of [cycles] from multiple perspectives, alluding to the idea of movement, of turning, of beginning and end, of mythical return, of what left and ended, of what opens and It flourishes or repeats indefinitely giving rise to multiple visual interpretations. Beginning and end, return, stages, movement … will be some of the possibilities that artists can visually explore in this portfolio.

[CYCLES] @ University of Nebraska, USA
Cycles Portfolio was selected through an open call for exhibition during Frogman’s 35th Anniversary Print Workshop. The exhibition was featured at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Weber Fine Arts Building . After the exhibition, the portfolio was donated by Fundación´ace to the Frogman´s Print Workshop collection.
ABOUT FROGMAN´S PRINT WORKSHOP
Frogman’s Print Workshop began humbly back in 1979 when Professor Lloyd Menard led five school teachers from Sioux City, Iowa to the Black Hills of South Dakota, USA, for a drawing class. Prints were first introduced in 1981 and the workshops evolved into the Black Hills Print Symposium which took place at various sites in Western South Dakota, USA.
The Black Hills set an amazingly beautiful backdrop to the workshops, but by 1996, the workshops had outgrown the confines of the Hills and were moved to Beresford, South Dakota, home of Frogman’s Press & Gallery. The workshops would only spend two years based out of Beresford before moving to nearby Vermillion and the University of South Dakota. Frogman’s would call USD home for nearly twenty years.
Later on, in 2016, Frogman’s made the big leap to Nebraska and the University of Nebraska at Omaha, where the Frogman took his first ever print class over 50 years ago. Currently, Frogman is directed by Lloyd Menard´s son, Jeremy Menard who is also University of Nebraska at Omaha as their Curator & Visual Resource Manager.
