Noëlle Maline

 A California based artist who grew up down by the sea in an old lookout tower . My work is inspired by the sounds and stillness of memories and the things that are left behind .. Stories and messages from the people we never knew and the fog of peculiar experiences .  Listening to the pipes and paper walls of an old apartment . Mostly my work is somewhere between the perception of memories and the in-between .


 Lately , 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 . Time becomes a fog when communicating with imaginary

things . There is a gray area somewhere in the back of one's mind . Trying to decode the stories that have been passed down from the people that are no longer here .

 I studied Fine Art at California Institute of the Arts 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 secret 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 , echoes and shadows using telephone transmitters ,

cassette recorders , tape loops and damaged records .
