Sculpture show the word 'TRUTH' or the word 'STORY' depending upon the viewpoint. Inspired by the idea that good stories have a deeper truth to them, while to communicate truths we often use the power of storytelling.
Neither concept is mutually exclusive.
With a background in engineering, design consulting and product design plus a degree from Stanford and a bit of Middle School teaching in the mix, Joe Norman approaches art from a different perspective than most artists, and that’s the primary focus for the majority of his sculptures - the viewer’s perspective. How you stand in the environment of the sculpture, dictates what you see. Adjust to another side, you see something else. This can be a girl who transforms into a monarch butterfly, or words of opposing meaning living in the same space like ‘peace’ and ‘chaos’. We hope you get the chance to interact with his art, it can change ones perspective on their place in nature.
