Heidi Norton (b. 1977, Baltimore, Maryland)
Heidi Norton is the consummate packer, joining experiment with process, conceptual message, reference to art history, and meta-photography, just for starters, in her enigmatic works, which employ multiple forms (photography, painting and, most recently, sculpture and found objects), sometimes separately and sometimes in a mix. No doubt all of this variety is brought together by the motif in which it is packaged—plants and shrubs. Yet they appear in many guises, evoking disparate moods. As a result, none of the works in the show is representative of the whole or epitomizes it; each conveys its own meanings.
Heidi Norton's ongoing solo show can be viewed at ebersmoore till 14th May, 2011.
Education: MFA, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago 2002. BA, The University of Maryland, Baltimore County, 1999.
