Artist Statement

                                

            My current series of landscape paintings "Calm and Storms" is an exploration of the dual sides of nature including our own natures - the calm, placid places in ourselves and the world where we take refuge for a while to rest and reflect. Equally important to me in these reflections are the dark and stormy sides of the world, those places that are charged with mysterious energies. Theses are places that challenge us to see and feel new things that we have previously ignored or have been afraid to fully experience.  Both sides are equally essential to create a balance in the world and ourselves. We can never fully appreciate or understand the light without the dark or, conversely, the dark without the   light.  In an ideal world we would experience both in equal balance.

Biography

           Norine Zapata was born and raised on Cape Cod. In 1969 she moved to Sarasota to attend Ringling School of Art and Design, graduating in 1972 with a major in fine art. Norine has exhibited her work in numerous juried shows on both Florida Coasts. She has been represented by art galleries in North Carolina and Palm Beach, and is currently represented by the Katharine Butler Gallery.
              She has several large bodies of work, ranging from traditional landscapes on canvas, and abstract cityscapes on canvas, to three-dimensional wood block constructions of cities. In her last series "Dimensions of Nature," begun in 2007, Norine explored the many subtleties of color, texture and light in the world around her. The series presented an impressionistic view of natural scenes, using a background collage beneath several layers of painted Plexiglas.
