Norton Wisdom

Saturday night I went to an awesome underground party. I initially thought that I would leave by 2:30-3 am but I ended up staying until about 6 am. I guess it was a fun event!

The music was oh-so-danceable and there was a live action painter by the name of Norton Wisdom. The website doesn't do his work any justice because what is truly amazing is that he paints to the music on a large backlit screen. His paintings are continually dissolving and morphing into other images. He works quickly and it is as if he is channelling energy from the spirit world. The divine is what moves his hand through the viscous layers of light and dark.

Wisdom has performed with many bands (including some very well known ones) throughout the world, and has shown internationally in galleries and museums. You can see a whole different series of paintings that he has worked on through the years here at the Patricia Correia Gallery.
