"Light as a Material"
Noger's works consist of three canvases, stretched over each other. Forms are cut from the middle layer that opens the view to the back, similar to Fontana. Around it lies the painted image, primarily painted in monochrome grey shades. The overlaid canvas covers the openings again, its transparent state, caused by a coating of mineral oil, appears as a translucent membrane that allows the light to penetrate. The negative forms produce a vessel character, holding the incoming light from the outside as well as returning it to the ambient space. The placement of the cut forms is difficult to make out as they allow the viewer to see into the depth of the painting – illusive as in the classic 'Tafelbild' (board picture) as well as into the actual depth as a result of the dimensional layered canvases – the painting gains the character of an object as well as a physical presence and volume. Illuminated by the energy of light, they evolve to pulsating luminous cocoon like forms that emanate from the painting. A complex dimensional structure. Simply, he literally draws in and entraps luminosity. Ambient light enters into the painting illuminating the forms he creates and is then transformed to reflect back into the surrounding space. The impression is that light is emanating from the forms themselves.

Contrary to the positions of the white monochrome painting from Piero Manzoni or Robert Ryman, Nöger intensifies the accent of structuring: beside the heterogeneous contoured negative forms, sometimes graphic structures are applied with charcoal onto the painting counter pointed to the delicate color application that lets us discern a distinct individual trademark.

Udo Nöger's artistic work is based on the synthesis of painted image and structured light object. The expanded character of Nöger's work is to define through following formal characteristics: painted tableau, space, light and the monochrome, that with structure is brought into tension.

In traditional painting the two dimensional 'Tafelbild' functions as a kind of window for us to see through into the distance. Spaced depth suggestion allows the viewer to look into the image itself. Horizon, the steady scale-decrease of the image and reduction are the characteristics for that. The material of the canvas and the layered color turns transparent and serves as the three dimensional illusion. Some abstract painted works impart the dimensional quality to the recipient as well. Thinking about the optical illusion from a Mark Rothko, where the colorfields show depth as they emerge pulsating and breathing from the image. Again, contrasting Robert Ryman's work, where the painting negates the illusionist space of the canvas, seeing the painted canvas as it is: image support, paint, work results, etc.

Udo Nöger's works are marking the space between painting in its illusionist suggestive power and an object of light, but in its natural sense. No artificial light is installed behind the matrix of the painting; instead the structure is purely depending on the surrounding situation of light. Whereas some light installations draw the viewer with their dominant loud blinding- so are Udo Nöger's works sensitive, reserved - refusing quick perception
