Udo Noger


Udo Nöger’s ongoing interest in the phenomena of light and its manifestation has led him to a remarkable and unique way of painting. Nöger’s paintings are composed of three layers of light transparent canvas stretched over each other in a frame. Forms are cut from the middle layer and the canvases painted and worked front and back to form a trap for lumininosity.

As a result, the work appears lighter and more transparent in certain parts.

Light travels into the closed atmosphere of the interior of Nöger’s paintings, is changed, and sent on its way back into the world. The experience of the material quality of light in these beautiful white paintings feels as though the light source emanates from deep within space, floating, hovering, pulsing and dancing, a memory of sensory impressions, a metaphor for inner life and spiritual intelligence.

Udo Nöger has exhibited through the United States and Europe including Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and Holland as well as Costa Rica and Canada. His work is included in the private collections of such notables as Halle Berry, Sylvester Stallone, Dennis and Kimberly Quaid, Elton John, Axl Rose, George Lindermann, Monique Lhuillier, Bill Gates, and Kelsey Grammer.
