Artist, Maddy Moon Norris, seeks to convey, through her artwork, the sense of a time when it was the norm to honour and celebrate; not only, the seasons, nature and mother earth, but also, rites of passage and spirit of place.
"Although my artwork is contemporary, there is a deep sense of connecting to the far distant past and the ancient wisdom of the ancestors, which I reinterpret and recreate in ways that relate to us today.
This may involve some research, though the final piece is intuitive."
So, inevitably, there is a touch of the shaman within her artwork, which hints at threshold, journey and ritual. Thus, lending it a certain primal, archetypal quality.
She allows her intuition to lead...and she follows.
