Felicita Norris

My paintings begin as reactions to personal experiences, although the images and themes represented are not strictly autobiographical. By using everyday situations, symbols, spaces and objects, including the human figure, I hope to reveal the complexities of the familiar to both prompt curiosity, and to draw the viewer inward. Employing a series of multimedia processes, the paintings become a stage for figures and objects in confined spaces, depicting, at times, unsettling images that respond to social constructions, institutions and politics.
