Norma Marquez-Orozco

I look into the physical as much as mental changes to reflect on life. Seeking to capture the present moment to experience and contemplate the current state of a space, mind, object and ideas. For construction and conception of my artwork I focus on perception, temporariness, light and especially movement. Many of my pieces are inspired by the constant random patterns in nature, like the clouds in the sky.  Others are inspired by the transformation of mental images that naturally emerge with the passing of time, new beliefs or simply lost memories.


I use a variety of papers in multiple ways; often arranged in layers or molded into three-dimensional forms, making the work appear as a three-dimensional drawing as well as sculpture. For most of my work I assemble repetitive geometric shapes and forms made of paper and other light materials inside envelopes or boxes of translucent paper. The arrangement is random and unfixed to allow movement and unpredictable composition. Whomever looks at these pieces, sees it for the first time, every time, because what is creating and completing the artwork is always changing; such that light, time, weather, seasons, and forms merge and interact. As a result of these dynamic relationships, the work extends beyond my own art process by continuing to make subtle shifts, sustaining an appearance and composition entirely of its own.
