German artist Udo Nöger abstractly renders light as a tangible material in his luminous transparent canvases. “Light appears to enter into the painting, illuminating the usually transparent forms and then returning to the ambient space that is its source. The paintings are composed of three thin layers of canvas, which trap the light so as to transform it and send it on its way, back into the world. In this way, the light in the painting feels as though it is emanating from the forms themselves,” comments John Goodman, art critic. Nöger’s soft and elegant compositions beautifully embody the artist’s ongoing interest in light and its manifestations.

Udo Nöger has exhibited throughout 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 and Sylvester Stallone. His work is part of numerous permanent public collections such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany.
