Valerie P Noftle

With a focus on relationship-building through storytelling, Noftle’s artistic practice seeks to facilitate communication, preserve memory and increase understanding among different peoples by creating visual bridges across cultures. Weaving photographic images and video into her practice, Noftle’s artwork represents both theory and method and acts to illustrate how behaviour or actions contribute to our collective understanding by addressing issues of race, identity and history.

As a mixed media artist, Noftle seeks to build community across cultures with an emphasis on lived experiences, giving voice to peoples who might otherwise remain voiceless. She has exhibited in numerous collective and solo shows beginning in 1998. Her artwork can be found in public and private collections both at home and abroad.
