Joe Norman is a sculptor whose handmade and site-specific works are informed by the intersection of the natural and human-made environment. “Over the past several years, I have been interested in creating public sculptures that show different images or words depending on the viewpoint of the observer,” he said. His work includes the words “Story/Truth” and “Fear/Love”, among others. His work also combines images of people and migratory animals. “My intent is to make art that contributes to a wider conversation about justice and care and our impact on the world,” he said.
Norman graduated with a degree in Product Design from Stanford University. He worked with design consulting firms, taught middle school and customized vintage motorcycles before becoming a full-time sculptor 11 years ago. He spends his free time ice climbing, riding bicycles, and fly-fishing with his 9-year-old daughter. He currently maintains his studio in Loveland, Colorado.
Joe was the Artist-In-Residence at Great Basin National Park and is an Associate Member of the National Sculptor’s Guild. His work is in permanent public and private collections across North America, including, New Balance Shoe Company, MA; U.S. National Park Service NV; MD Anderson Cancer Center, CO.
