Noëlle Maline

 A California based artist who grew up down by the sea in an old lookout tower . My work is about channeling signals from the back of one's mind . It is inspired by currents and electricity . The sounds and stillness through the telephone lines . Memories of conversations and the things that were left behind . Stories and messages from the people we never knew and the fog of peculiar experiences .  Recordings and listening to the pipes and paper walls of an old apartment . It is about somewhere between the perception of memories .


 I have been working on documenting invisible threads and recording fragments of imaginary communication into something that is tangible .. Connecting information and signals from the past and how time becomes a fog when communicating with imaginary

things . Trying to decode the stories that have been passed around from the people that are no longer here .

 I studied at California Institute of the Arts in 1992 and in 2002 while concentrating on layered installations and experimental sound .
For several years .. I created a traveling installation of a secret museum and gallery called Musee16 ~ A Diorama of an Art Exhibition which began in an old corner pharmacy under a bridge in Portland . It then traveled down the coast in a vintage 1940s trailer exhibiting at parks and then to an old upstairs shoe repair shop in Santa Ana . The latest installation being near the defunct railroad tracks in an old fish factory in Los Angeles . Some other projects and collaborations include performing live experimental sound installations to 16mm film projections and art directing sets on a few independent films . 

 

 Recent works continue to entail creating multi layered installations in hidden rooms , layered paintings and mixed media collages and sound art .  Materials involve paint , paper , old photographs , vintage magazines and found objects . Collecting remnants , lost images and pockets of artifacts . Translating layers of distant sounds using telephone transmitters ,

cassette recorders , tape loops and damaged records .
