Painting is a practice through which one offers their entire being to the mystery of creativity.  When the brush hits the canvas, it's as if time stops and the artist is invited to sway harmoniously with the universe.  Each brush stroke is layered upon the next to create an object that reminds us of our true boundless nature.

My mission is to continually open to the secrets of life with a brush in-hand. I hope to create art that wakes the viewer to unexpected and beautiful states of awareness.

Andrew Norris

Andrew Norris Thompson paints from a place of wonder, investigating the contents of the collective unconscious. By using pareidolia- a psychological phenomenon wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern in something where none actually exists- he builds worlds guided by subconscious musings, creating a narrative as the forms develop. 

Inspired by dreams, the complexities of human relationships, and a desire to transcend the confines of normal consciousness, his art speaks to the depth and breadth of human experience.
