About Norman Sutton-Hibbert:
I’m a multi-disciplinary artist working in a wide range of media, and I aim to reflect that this is necessary to my artwork, and in particular to the work I willpresent in the exhibition ‘Narratives in Times of Absurdity’. For many years now I’ve had a very real interest in using fabric and other found items in my work. Much this fabric is from personal clothing or functional household items – which I believe bring with them the DNA/history of the person who wore or lived with them. The same can be said of other material such as collage, or familiar objects. As a life long student of history – and today is tomorrow’s history – I’ve always been inclined to draw on the experiences of others, and also myself, in times where circumstances beyond our control, be they good, bad or just plain absurd, impact on our lives in wide variety of ways. And it is these narratives I choose to represent in much of my artwork.

Undoubtedly my reading of what I refer to as being the experiences of others and myself, are influenced by my 30+ years of working as a Social Worker/Mental Health Officer. Also, with the plethora of media platforms we are exposed to today, we are made very aware of the lives and experiences of others throughout the world. So many of the narratives, or stories, I try to tell through my artwork, can be well out with my personal experience and be in based in history past and present. More information about the exhibition will follow in the New Year!

Please note that the exhibition will adhere to all Covid restrictions and due to this the dates may change.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Narratives in Times of Absurdity are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
