Waterhouse & Dodd Contemporary, New York is pleased to announce ‘Norman Mooney: New Works’ an exhibition of new wall sculptures and drawings which explore the natural world through a physical indulgence in the process of making. It is Mooney’s first solo show with the gallery.
Norman Mooney was born in Dublin Ireland in 1971. He studied at the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork and completed his BFA at the National College of Art in Dublin in 1992. He then received the distinguished honor of participating in the Third Degree program at the Irish Museum of Modern Art from 1992 to 1993. In 1994 he relocated to New York City and has been exhibiting locally and internationally for more than 16 years. Recent exhibitions include, 1, 2, 3 Volume at the Siqueiros Museum in Mexico City, Beyond Borders in Abi Dhabi and Close your Eyes at Martine Chaisson in New Orleans.
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. Norman makes sculpture, interior and exterior installations, drawings and works on paper, his methodology is one of experiementation and process with 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.
