Here's my Artist Statement from 8 years ago...I've just rediscovered it!
Pleased to see that it's still relevant to my Artwork today...
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.
Circular, spiral and labyrinthine images have long beguiled her,
they permeate her thoughts, dreams and memories; suggesting
metaphorical links between past and present, physical and spiritual.
To her, these profound symbols are primal and archetypal, they
inform much of her work.
''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 work, which
hints at threshold, journey and ritual. Thus, lending it a certain primal,
She allows her intuition to lead...and she follows.
