Artist Bio

German artist Udo Nöger’s passionate interest in light led him to discover a new and unique way of painting. He abstractly renders light into a tangible material by composing three thin layers of canvas. The layers trap the light, sending it bouncing throughout the canvases and finally sending it out beautifully changed for the viewer’s eye.

Nöger has exhibited throughout the United States and Europe including Germany, Italy, Spain and Austria as well as Hong Kong and Canada. His work is included in many private collections including Elton John, Bruce Springsteen and Bill Gates. Nöger’s work is part of numerous permanent public collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany.

“I use light itself to paint light…you cannot touch the inside of my paintings but you can feel it.”
