Biography

Norm Paris creates sculptures, drawings, and mixed-media works that explore the relationship between objects, iconography, mythology, and language. Inspired by the changing industrial landscape, he is interested in objects for their permanence relative to the ephemerality of biological life. His architecturally themed images often include human figures that are spliced open and fragmented, themselves represented as immovable objects. “My drawings attempt to create a place where leisure obsessions inflect a surreal, meandering architectural project,” he says.
