Ben Norris, Composition - Haleiwa Bay I [Hawaii], 1951

Ben Norris, Composition - Haleiwa Bay I [Hawaii], 1951


Description: From the Estate of the Artist. Norris studied at Pomona College, Harvard, and the Sorbonne, but supplemented his schooling by working directly with Stanton Macdonald-Wright, Jean Charlot, Josef Albers and Max Ernst. When the University of Hawaii resumed classes after World War II, Norris became Chairman of the Art Department and seized the opportunity to invite distinguished artists as visiting professors or artists-in-residence. Ernst exerted an especially potent influence, about which Norris later wrote: “I had invited him to the University. He was both charming and accessible to us, giving me a chance to hear and to understand some authentic ‘info’ about Surrealism. I eventually merged some of the conventional Surrealist forms of automatic painting with Far Eastern paper handling techniques.” Ben Norris’ abstract interpretations of the Hawaiian landscape 'Wind from the Sea I' and 'The Pali' were exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1950. 'Composition - Haleiwa Bay I' was also painted during this decade of artistic exploration.
