Norman Dilworth

Time & Tide

'Norman Dilworth has elaborated numerous systems and his creations adopt various forms. Their presentation can be unexpected, like the sculpture in the form of a zigzag. Meander, that was laid in a riverbed in 1991 and indicates which way the current flows, or the piece entitled Jouetssance, composed of 49 wooden elements painted in the colours of the French flag that were scattered on the beach at Calais one September day in 2005. Norman Dilworth takes the rigour of programmes and adds the thrill of discovery. He is now living in Lille, where he settled in 2002 having once lived in Paris, from 1956 to 1957, on a French government grant. His path is original and consequential, his work varied and rich.' - Serge Lemoine, Ex Director, Musée D'Orsay, Paris [extract from exhibition catalogue: 'Norman Dilworth', Musée Matisse, Le Cateau-Cambrésis, 2007]
