BIOGRAPHY

Naomie Kremer is a painter, video artist, and stage designer. She has exhibited widely in the US and abroad. Her work is in many private and public collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Berkeley Art Museum, The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and the US Embassy, Beijing, China.

Kremer’s imagery, though largely abstract, is based in the real world–incorporating nature, architecture, language, letterforms, and the human figure. Her work draws from a wide range of sources and inspirations, including art history, music, poetry and literature. Her video based set design led her to begin combining painting and video.

“I became intrigued by the surprising perceptual and psychological experience of viewing video and painting simultaneously. I began referring to these as “hybrid paintings” – a melding of painting and video that leaves the viewer uncertain which part is paint and which is projection”.

Her video based set designs include the San Francisco production of Tristan and Isolde, by Richard Wagner; Lucia Berlin Stories, performed in San Francisco and Paris by Word for Word Theater Company; Alcina, by George F Handel, performed in Acre, Israel, by the French Baroque orchestra Les Talens Lyriques; the world premiere production of The Secret Garden co-commissioned by San Francisco Opera and Cal performances; Light Moves, a collaboration with Margaret Jenkins Dance Company; and Bluebeard’s Castle by Béla Bartók, commissioned by the Berkeley Opera. In the Beginning Was Desire, for which she conceived and created the animation, is her first film project.

Kremer has taught Painting and Drawing at California College of the Arts, San Francisco; The San Francisco Art Institute; California State University, Hayward; and the Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art, Brittany, France. She has been a visiting artist and guest lecturer at The Ruskin School of Drawing and Painting, Oxford University; the Syracuse University Painting Program, Florence, Italy; Ringling College of Art and Design, Sarasota; and Mills College, Oakland. Kremer is based in California with studios in Berkeley, Paris and New York.

EXHIBITIONS

Square Cylinder, by David Roth
"Kremer fosters the illusion of multiple perspectives by linking clusters of loose and tightly knit brushstrokes in patterns whose closing rhythms vary enormously within any single canvas. The feel is of colliding force fields…
The dominant feel is of an organic Cubism, achieved without interpenetrating planes...
For Kremer, nature is the springboard for abstraction. She rejuvenates it by placing total faith in her own gestural impulses. Carried forward in video feedback loops that both break apart and reconstruct the source material, they deliver Abstract Expressionism into the digital present.
"

SF ARTS QUARTERLY, by John Held
"In Naomie Kremer’s paintings, there are thousands of strokes, but none seem wasted and all seem to build toward a crescendo of unimaginable harmony. I marvel at her confidence, because no one can foretell where a work like this is leading."

Chicago Tribune, by Sid Smith
"…the richly collaborative thrust behind this piece includes the mesmerizing, delicately beautiful projection of designer Naomie Kremer."

SF Examiner, by Stephen Smoliar
"Kremer’s images explore the complexity of such perception…creating what is almost an ingenious laboratory in which we can ponder just what it is that the mind is doing in the midst of all those changes…."

SECRET GARDEN

San Francisco Opera and Cal Performances

SF Chronicle, by Joshua Kosman
"Perhaps the most delectable aspect of Friday’s premiere…was the visual design of Naomie Kremer, a series of video projections that did a superb job of capturing the piece’s mood and detail."
