About Norma Barsness

Artist Norma Barsness is a landscape contemporary painter with a unique vision. Her paintings take a familiar scene and turn what is common into something extraordinary. Her compositions portray life, colour and beauty in the natural flora of Alberta. Her style at times is primitive and contemporary, embellished with vibrant colours and shapes. Her constant goal is to create pieces that speak to the heart. What is conveyed will be different for each viewer as each person approaches a painting from a different perspective. Norma’s paintings transport us to a place where time stands still. Her compositions portray a quiet time, yet powerful images of movement can be seen. Her paintings tempt those who choose to look beyond the mundane and to experience a unique and timeless look at simple life. Norma resides in Calgary and paints scenes familiar to her. She works to induce emotion and attain a particular aesthetic, rather than portray a specific place. Viewers are drawn in by her brilliant colours and bold brush strokes which define her signature style. Norma’s work has been exhibited widely in many Alberta shows and galleries.

Artist Statement
