Mixed Media, Woodcuts and Artist's Books
Ilse Schreiber-Noll was born in Germany. She received her MFA from Purchase College SUNY where she studied and taught with woodcut artist Antonio Frasconi. His teachings became a profound influence upon her together with the works of German writers and artists, among them Bertolt Brecht. Both Brecht’s and her work leans on nature as a rescue devise in a sea of political disillusion - looking upon the environment as a steadfast and reliable presence amidst the damaging tendencies of society. Her works often express the terrors of war and the threat of ecological disaster but also focus on the beauty of nature and life. The artist presently lives and works in the Hudson Valley.
