ARTS WRITER

A for­mer cul­ture and life­style ed­i­tor, the Syd­ney-based free­lance writer, con­fesses she’s hardly been home of late. Faulkner has been talk­ing to in­ter­est­ing peo­ple for a liv­ing for about 11 years, and con­sid­ers her­self very lucky to write about things she truly cares about. This is­sue, she spoke to fe­male ex­hibitors at Syd­ney Con­tem­po­rary art fair (page 80). “I re­ally be­lieve in ev­ery gal­lerist I in­ter­viewed and the dif­fer­ences each has in their eye, ap­proach and cu­ra­tion,” she says. “I love Syd­ney Con­tem­po­rary as an art fair — the en­ergy, the peo­ple watch­ing, the new­ness — for one week­end, it makes Syd­ney an achingly cool place to be.” Talk­ing about her cre­ative process, Faulkner says her work is 60 per cent con­ver­sa­tion, 15 per cent ob­ser­va­tion and 25 per cent soli­tude. She re­veals there’s a du­al­ity to be­ing a free­lancer. “I love be­ing alone but I love talk­ing to peo­ple, it’s kind of a strange ex­is­tence.” Hav­ing writ­ten on var­ied top­ics, from mu­sic to fu­tur­ism, and jet­set­ting across the globe to do so, she ad­mits, “I’m ad­dicted to the chaos of it all.” noelle­faulkner.com @noelle­flamingo
