Noelle's most recent work is about
documenting transparent things and recording imaginary communication into something that is tangible..
Being able to see sound and hear shadows. A guide to what is invisible.
This is what artist, Noelle Maline has been working in creating .. Narrative installations and collages involving translating static, echos and sound waves of the nameless and displaced people from the past.. While attempting to decode what they are trying to tell through stories using altered reception. Sound waves come through the adapted photographs by means or ways of rendered frequencies. There is also an element of illustrating what the gray area in the mind would try to convey, through alternative forms of communication.
Noelle grew up down by the sea in an old lookout tower.. Her mother was a writer and librarian. She would would bring home old books to fill the house up to the ceiling. Her father researched history and was good with numbers. Her older brother worked in a book shoppe and collected rocks out by the old mines. Coming from a family of collectors, they would bring back obsolete findings from various road trips - to be displayed all over the house. Noelle learned early on that everything had a story.. And that some of the most interesting ones were of the unknown and untold.
Noelle started taking private art classes early on and became mostly interested in oil painting and collage work. She studied photography at a mountaineering school in the Colorado Rockies and attended California Institute of the Arts for a short while. Noelle then took a few years off for traveling and research. During this time, she won the Art of California Gold Award. Thereupon, she went back to complete her degree at Cal Arts and was awarded a BFA in the studies of art, installation and experimental sound.
Some of her most recent projects have been installations of wires in secret rooms, mapping invisible communication and sound performances to old film projections.
Noelle lives and works by the sea near Los Angeles, CA
