About Norman Mooney

Metaphysical yet material, Norman Mooney’s work explores man’s relationship to scale, form, and pattern. He is best known for his massive starburst sculptures that mimic the “elemental and cyclical synergies of nature.” Mooney, who also produces installations, drawings, and works on paper, says his pieces “deal with the eternal dichotomy of the present, the immediate moment when we are ultimately becoming and eternally dying at precisely the same time.” Seamlessly interacting with their environments, whether indoors and outdoors, his sculptures have been installed in the United States, Ireland, Mexico, and Abu Dhabi.
