Episode 37-Norma Torti

Revealing and sharing the truth about the beauty and goodness around me is why I create art. Every day I feel a childlike freedom as I observe colors, textures, and contrasts of simple things, especially in nature. I love to transform an empty canvas into a full, detailed story of my subjects in living color. It is more than the mechanics of painting or drawing; it touches me spiritually when I see the image slowly coming to light.

I am committed to perpetuating the historical painting and drawing practices of artists from the 16th and 17th century with contemporary subjects. I begin with a detailed drawing, mass in colors, and meticulously build the paint layer over layer until finished. The subjects I choose and the realistic style of my work invites people into each piece where they may connect to their own truth.
