About Polly Norman

Currently, I am working in mixed media and also new media (digital). The works in both media are kinetic in nature. Like my past abstract work, they reflect my love of dance with the energy, motion, and form they project.

Many years ago I invented a unique process of photographing objects through glass block in black and white. The images are enhanced by adding an additional layer of images and/or coloring. A painter and a photographer, I have combined the two mediums in my collections of abstract colored black and white photographs.

I am inspired by dancers movement and the music that moves them. My artwork has been described as kinetic, flowing and calligraphic.
