Norman Mooney

Irish born Norman Mooney makes works that are at once physical and metaphysical. Exploring the elemental and cyclical synergies of nature, Mooney’s work focuses on materiality, pattern, sense of scale and experience. The artist’s methodology of experimentation and process with materials such as smoke, glass, steel and resin are expressed through his sculptures, interior and exterior installations, drawings and works on paper. Mooney studied at the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork and earned 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 in 1992-1993. A year later he relocated to New York City and has had a successful exhibition record since then in national and international galleries and museums, including “1,2,3 Volume” at the Polyforum Siqueiros Museum in Mexico City and “Beyond Borders” in Abu Dhabi.” Mooney set up WorkSpace 11 in New York in 2000 where he works with a team of studio technicians, architects and engineers to explore his process and ideas
