Miriam Nöske

Miriam Nöske was born in Germany and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. She studied at Chelsea College of Art & Design, the University of Fine Arts Berlin and graduated with a MFA in Studio Art from the California Institute of the Arts in 2004. She was awarded an Erasmus scholarship for a residency at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in 1999 where she worked in the sculpture class of renowned artist Michaelangelo Pistoletto. Her paintings, prints and drawings demonstrate the parallels that exist between representational and the non-objective as well as the links between conceptual narrative, and purely formal compositions of space and time. In her new work, she examines the current media-types prevalent in Los Angeles and its environs and uses these with reference to art history and her European heritage to examine female representation, cultural and political phenomena and the narrative language that runs through it. Her artwork has been shown internationally and was included in select group exhibitions at Hudson | Linc (West Hollywood, 2014), LA Mart (Los Angeles, 2013), CMU Art Center (ChiangMai, 2012), ACG Gallery (Athens, 2011), Gallery 825 (West Hollywood, 2009). Select solo exhibitions include Double Feature at Kristi Engle Gallery (Los Angeles 2010), Metropolitan Times at Moorpark College Gallery (2010) and Reflecting City at Sea and Space Explorations (Los Angeles, 2008). Her work is in the collection of the American College of Greece (Athens) and in various private collections in Los Angeles, New York and Europe.
