Tom Norris often works at combining surface and form to explore ideas that move from the playful to the serious; from the simple to the sacrosanct. Norris presents these ideas as a layering of figuration and abstraction enveloping the surfaces of his work. Norris’s exploration of mark making hints at a narrative directed by the use of symbol, line and colour. The lack of a ‘full stop’ in the work allows for stories, characters and marks to make way for each other across and around their surfaces.
