Norman Busse is a new and emerging Canadian artist whose passion and ideas spill into a variety of landscapes, figurative, and narrative artworks. Even in his earliest paintings the presence of a figure, its context and implication, became thematic to his work.
Norman’s interest in an obscured narrative, of the absurd, of irony and of displacement culminates in his current exhibition ‘EISEGESIS’ whereby he combines images of people, objects, and environments in order to create a picture that invites multiple interpretations. It is in these layers of unsettling ambiguity where the artist receives the greatest response from his observers.
Norman regularly pulls from childhood and family history, from his recollection of historical events, popular culture, ideas and archetypes that recur in the history of Art. His work has an absurdist sense of disconnection and alienation of the modern world, of individuals haunted by their past and their own mortality, and of an experience by people struggling with their own sense of who they are.
Norman has exhibited his works in Ontario at different galleries, and has works in many private collections.
