Chasing the Muse (TEDx) and Art from Melanie Norris

Hypnagogia_II_30x30

Melanie Norris is a Johnson City, Tennessee native who now lives and works in Asheville, North Carolina. As an abstract portrait painter she uses color and texture to build forms that represent faces and emotions. Though most paintings are done with watercolor on specially primed canvas, layers of oil pigment are worked into many compositions to serve as a visual anchor and contrast of texture.

“Hallucinations,” her current body of work, fractures the identity of the subject to allow a new psychological study to emerge.

She currently has a studio in Whitespace Gallery of the Wedge Building in the River Arts District of Asheville.
