Norman Barney

Norman Barney is a multimedia artist who currently works at his studios in Petrolia and on Manitoulin Island. His themes are based on cultural stereotypes, kitsch, nostalgia, and tourism. His work consists of wall hung and free-standing assemblages and paintings. His recent acrylic paintings utilize the odd interactions of bright color, texture, pattern, collaged fabrics, found objects and shine by the addition of mirror paint, glitter, and bling. Continuing with his theme of cultural stereotypes, he also has been working with installation using found objects, kitsch, memorabilia, and furniture. His work is a sophisticated form of Outsider Art or Art Singular. Norman is also a member of an Art Singular group called Remix Collective.
