Noëlle Maline

Noelle Maline is an American mixed media painter who grew up in Long Beach, California, by the sea. Her mother was a writer and librarian. She 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 shop 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 interested in oil painting and collage work. She studied photography at a mountaineering school in the Colorado Rockies and attended the California Institute of the Arts for a short while. She 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 received her BFA in the studies of visual art, installation, and experimental sound.

Her work is deeply related to documenting transparent things and recording imaginary communication, an action she has denominated “Portraits of repurposed memories.” 

 

“My most recent works entail creating narrative mixed media paintings and collages, sound art montages, and multi-layered installations in hidden rooms.”

 

Her preferred materials encompass paint, paper, old photographs, vintage magazines, and found objects. At the same time, her practice involves collecting remnants, lost images, and pockets of artifacts. Noelle is currently based in Los Angeles, California.
