Udo Noeger

Born in Germany and now based in San Diego, Miami, and Geneva, Noeger is widely renowned for his luminous abstract paintings, whose primary medium is nothing less than light itself. Noeger  began his career steeped in the traditions of German neo-expressionist artists such as Anselm Kiefer and Georg Baselitz, but in the early 1990's he left behind the figure, the heavy layers, and the dark colors that had characterized his early work.  Reducing his color palette to an ethereal spectrum of white tones, he began creating artworks in what has become his signature style. While the paintings evoke the immaculate austerity of minimalism, they share a closer affinity with the Arte Povera movement of the 1960's and 70's, for Noeger  has long been interested in transcending the limitations of the painted canvas and expanding its possibilities.  “I had this idea to open up the canvas,” he reflects.  “For me it’s very necessary that I’m not sitting in front of a canvas and filling it up with forms; I’m more interested in the space and the endless possibilities of what’s underneath the canvas.  I don’t need color anymore; I’m using light itself.  The light is producing the painting.”

Noeger has exhibited internationally, with critically acclaimed shows in cultural capitals such as Paris, Madrid, Vienna, Berlin, Milan, Hong Kong, Toronto, New York, and Los Angeles.  His paintings are included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Art Institute of Chicago, Margulies Collection (Miami), Haus der Kunst (Munich), Kunsthalle Bielefeld (Bielefeld, Germany), as well as in significant public, private, and corporate collections around the world.
