Margaret Norris is a graduate of the University of the Arts London holding an honours degree in fine art. She is based in Sydney and her work is held in private collections in Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Australia & New Zealand.
Margaretís colourful abstract paintings are based on natural phenomena: landscape, and cellular structures. Her interest lies in macroscopic versus microscopic duality and her paintings use light and colour to enhance natural structures from the world around us. The source material for these unique images is quite diverse and may be anything from electron microscopy, optical & thermal imaging or the growth structures created by micro-organisms. The scale of such cellular activity is magnified to massive proportions such that the final paintings can measure up to two metres squared.
