  • BIOGRAPHY & RESUME
  •

He then received the distinguished honor of participating in the Third Degree program at the Irish Museum of Modern Art from 1992 to 1993. In 1994 he relocated to New York City and has been exhibiting locally and internationally for more than 20 years. Recent exhibitions include In Sight at Marso Gallery in Mexico City, What Happens today will last Forever at Causey Contemporary in New York and Meeting in Brooklyn presented at Landcommanderij Alden Biesen, Alden Biesen in Belgium.

  • Norman makes works that are at once physical and metaphysical. His works explore the elemental and cyclical synergies of nature. Materiality, pattern, scale and experience are key concerns within his practice. Norman makes sculpture, interior and exterior installations, drawings and works on paper; his methodology is one of experimentation and process with materials such as smoke, glass, steel and resin. In 2000 he established WorkSpace11 in New York City where he works with a team of architects and engineers.
