Artists Index: Rupert Norfolk

Rupert Norfolk (b. 1974, Abergavenny, Wales. Lives and works in London) Norfolk studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design (1996). He makes sculptures that create subtle shifts in perception by challenging usual expectations of form or physical dimension. Venetian blinds are laser-cut to show the shape of light as it comes through, rumpled fabrics are woven with the pattern of rumpled fabric, natural rocks carved into unlikely symmetry. This produces an ambiguity between object and image; his works simultaneously representing objects and themselves as the object they represent. Recent solo shows include Stella Lohaus, Antwerp; Dicksmith Gallery, London; and VOLTAshow 02, Basel, Switzerland.
