BIO
Noa Chernichovsky, a ceramic artist, was born in Jerusalem in 1990 and currently resides in Tel Aviv and London. She holds a MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art, London (2022) and a BFA in Ceramics and Glass from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem (2016). She also had the opportunity to study in Bornholm, Denmark at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2014.

In 2018, Noa founded the Ceramic in Frishman ceramic school in Tel Aviv, a significant hub for ceramic education in Israel.


Chernichovsky is represented (2022) by the Charles Burnand Gallery in London. Her works have been featured in various exhibitions, museums, and private collections across the UK, Europe, and Israel, including notable institutions such as the Faenza International Ceramics Museum, The Natural History Museum, and more.  In 2023, Noa was honored to be shortlisted for the MIC 62nd Faenza Prize and the Brookfield Properties Craft Award at Collect. Her dedication to her craft has earned her prestigious scholarships, including the Clore-Bezalel Scholarship for her MA studies in 2020 and The Blumenthal Award for Excellence in 2016.


ARTIST STATMENT

Noa Chernichovsky’s work is based on a constant awareness of her immediate surroundings as she moves in the world. She examines the network of associations that is created around objects and their fragments, tying together their inherent narratives.  Her work aims a spotlight on the everyday physical things that we often overlook, and she reconstructs them into hybrid ceramic volumes. The aesthetic at the core of her practice is based on the urban imagery of the asphalt road or sidewalk as a constant that’s inhabited by transient, colorful imagery. 

Chernichovsky sees herself as a “sampler” of surfaces and forms from the physical world.  Her sculptures are composed of many elements, each with its own context and cultural value.  As in a collage, these elements accumulate into a larger image that holds its own various identities and creates a dreamlike new environment.  She combines different ceramic techniques that include thrown parts, hand-building, and slab molding, blended with non-ceramic materials and readymade. Although the subjects of her work are mundane, they are conveyed in a language that is over-the-top, with elaborate textures and patterns that produce a final image full of energy.

Noa works to commission as well as for exhibition and installation. She is open to conversations with galleries and is interested in residencies globally. Her practice is currently studio-based, where she continues to research and develop her work as well as seek external opportunities.
