Ilse Schreiber-Noll is a multi media artist. Her woodcuts, paintings, books and installations  trace their roots back to the passionate writings of Bertolt Brecht and others, who spoke for the rights of the downtrodden. She creates densely painted surfaces with the addition of collage elements: wire, wood, photos and books that give a strong sense of physical presence. The recurrent themes of her work depict the terrors of war and the threat of ecological disaster.

The artist was born in Germany and attended the University of Marburg before moving to the United States to study woodcut and the art of the book with the Uruguayan-American artist, Antonio Frasconi, whose politically-driven subjects combined with her own lifelong reading of the German poets and authors, especially Bertolt Brecht, inspired her strong sense of social justice. She received her MFA from SUNY Purchase, NY where she later on taught The Art of the Book with Antonio Frasconi.

Another aspect of her early work are collaborations with poets, writers and musicians. She worked with Eric Bentley, the playwright, translator and preeminent authority on Brecht and collaborated with him in producing over ten booklets with her woodblock prints, pen-and-ink drawings, aquarelles and collages. Collaborations with other luminaries include Joseph BrodskyDennisBrutus, Galway Kinnell, Octavio Paz and John Cage. Some of her most lyrical, elegiac work - in any medium - can be found among these limited edition and unique books. Many are in public and private collections worldwide.

‚ÄčThe artist presently lives and works in Croton On Hudson and in  Peekskill, NY as well as in Berlin, Germany.
