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.
The intention behind these multi-focal sculptures is to open dialogue of how we can transform ideas/statements/actions through a simple change of one’s own perspective. As the viewer approaches the artwork they will see the form of butterflies or words emerge and become clear.
