The 30-year-old German artist Juliane Noack was on board the Germanwings flight that crashed into the French Alps on March 24, Monopol reports.

Her gallerist, Katrin Eitner, published an obituary on the gallery’s website written by Daniel Kruger, who was Noack’s professor at the Academy of Art in Halle.

Kruger writes: “Juliane Noack’s interests spanned jewelry making, music, experimental fashion and design, and figurative sculpture. An excellent draftsperson, Juliane had an unusual facility for understanding and implementing skills of all kinds: She could make whatever she wanted and never stinted on the time and effort required. She applied the same intense energy to life in general as she did to her artistic pursuits. Her slogan was, “Los, wir machen das jetzt!” (Come on, let’s do it now!).”

Noack graduated in 2012, and won the international graduate prize awarded by Galerie Marzee. She went on to exhibit her work in several group shows and solo exhibitions in Germany. Her work is also included in the collection of the CODA Museum Apeldoorn, in the Netherlands.

The Berlin-based Galerie Eitner will hold a retrospective show of Noack’s works later this year. In addition, the Kunstgewerbeverein (Design Society) in Munich will host a special exhibition dedicated to the late artist.

Germanwings Flight 9525 crashed March 24 in the French Alps, killing the 144 passengers and six crew members on board.

Investigations might conclude that the plane’s copilot, Andreas Lubitz, took the plane down intentionally.

Lufthansa, Germanwings’ parent company, is expected to compensate the relatives.
