Fear and Love - steel bar
Fear and Love by Joe Norman
Word Play Sculpture
96x24x24" ed/5 Steel bar, Paint
Sculpture depicts the words ‘FEAR’ and ‘LOVE’ depending on the viewed angle.
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.
