Norman Mooney’s work depart from industrial design. His neatly finished pieces made by complex industrial processes, such as compression of glass, aluminum casting, screen printing, etc., deliver pieces that invite us to deep aesthetic and conceptual reflections.
His understanding of space recognizes its temporal aspect. For Mooney space exists not only in relation to time, it is in time. In this sense, Mooney’s work invites us to understand ourselves as co-producers of this space and to stay in the immediacy that belongs only to the present.
That is why his work is only activated when we transit the exhibition space, when the sharp edges of the objects force us to become aware of our own body; it happens when our eyes seek to focus the inexorably amorphous figures of his carbon installations, and through the vibration that is triggered through the lights, darks and the colors of his drawings; it occurs when light defragments passing through his glass sculptures.
