ABOUT THE ARTIST
Norman Kary is a Dallas based artist living and working for over 40 years in the DFW metroplex. He primarily works with assemblage, collage and sculptural objects. His fascination with found objects goes back to his childhood where he scavenged fields around industrial parks in Los Angeles. His work has evolved to the point that he identifies with these discarded materials as souls - as a metaphor of his youth. His process provides a stage for these found objects and images to tell a story - in doing so, there's the potential to discover something about ourselves.
My challenge as an artist has always been to present a stage for objects to tell their story. The inspiration for the found objects I discover comes from an understanding that they possess a personal, hidden narrative; an underlining store to share with us. Seemingly random objects such as globes, watch pieces, and dice have a direct reference in my mind to Time , Memory and Chance. These disparate materials create an uncharacteristically complex enigmatic imagery that may not be understood upon their initial viewing. Various objects obviously have a variety of associations and meanings to each and every one of us. It is for this reason that the conclusion of that narrative I leave solely up to the viewer.
