Joe Norris’s paintings explore the area between representational art and total abstraction. Implying, rather than rendering, invites the viewer to participate…to engage with the created image. Through use of color, composition and texture, he aims to create the essence of something…to create a feel for a subject matter. By using typography, collage and graphic elements as a starting point to develop an underpainting, in addition to a series of transparent washes, these elements suggest a previous history that adds to the sense of space and visual depth.
The Next Stage Gallery is open to the public during scheduled performances in the theater, and by appointment.
