Norma Schwartz was born in Argentina. During the 70’s she emigrated to Spain, furthering her practice as a psychoanalyst. In 1994, she moved to the USA pursuing her psychoanalytic profession and at the same time experiencing different sculpting techniques.
The process improved her ability to create new ways to inhabit a three-dimensional space, and re-discover the importance of light,
How to express thoughts and feelings without words – or in the new language of sculpting – are explored in each of her works; to say something trough an abstract language that has the background of her own life experience and influences are the basis of her creations.
At the beginning of each work, Norma makes drawings and clay models, but very soon in the process of carving, the piece becomes free, with its own life, a mirror of something profound and unknown; she says that the result takes her always by surprise.
