Norman Mooney

Norman Mooney was born in Dublin in 1971. After studying at the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork, he completed his BFA at the National College of Art in Dublin in 1992. He was subsequently awarded the Third Degree Programme at the Irish Museum of Modern Art from 1992 to 1993. In 1994, he moved to New York and has been exhibiting there and internationally ever since. Recent exhibitions include, 1, 2, 3 Volume at the Siqueiros Museum in Mexico City, Beyond Borders in Abu Dhabi, Close your Eyes at Martine Chaisson in New Orleans and Wall Flowers at Causey Contemporary in New York.

Norman makes works that are at once physical and metaphysical. His works explore the elemental and cyclical synergies of nature. Materiality, pattern, scale and experience are key concerns within his practice. He makes sculpture, interior and exterior installations, drawings and works on paper. His methodology is one of experimentation in process and materials such as smoke, glass, steel and resin. In 2000, he set up WorkSpace11 in New York where he works with a team of studio technicians, architects and engineers.
