Joshua Obara Norwood is an abstract expressionist artist working with oils, encaustic and found objects. His works often imitate emotions, transporting them from the person to the canvas. He places memories onto his works- sometimes chipping them off if he wishes them to be gone. Or simply transporting them from self to canvas.
His works usually have multiple layers. Every new layer adds a new history and story to work. Sometimes one story is incomplete without blending into the previous stories by scratching into the work so that the previous layers are visible.
