Norma Greenwood - ART CART Oral History

Greenwood, Norma; Yu, Arlene; Hutzel, Jennifer; Teachers College. Research Center for Arts and Culture

Norma Greenwood’s artwork is influenced by her environment, family, travels, and everyday objects. She explains wanting her photography, paintings, and collages to have a narrative quality that resonates with her audience. Greenwood talks about her mentors, including Robert Motherwell for abstract expressionism and Leo Mansel for realism, which she tries to find a balance between. Much of her artwork includes themes about clouds, dreams, and travel, playing with light and shadows, patterns, and rust.
