In this current series, I have explored the idea of Abstraction and its relationship to the Landscape. By shifting the narrative from realistically representing a mirror of nature, to visually creating a feeing of it-I can create the concept of a landscape, rather than the landscape itself.
Through random gestural marks, colors, and forms that aign in ways suggestive of clouds and horizons. I can achieve freedom from objective context and portray the abstracted landscapes of my imagination.

Title: New Color - New Mexico
New Work by Artist: Michael Norviel (Painter)
Michael Norviel has produced oil, acrylic, charcoal and pastel painting for over 50 years in New Mexico. Galleries representing him have ranged from Albuquerque and Santa Fe to Arizona, New York and currently Key West, his boyhood home that first inspired his vibrant use of color and drama to create figurative, still life and landscape subjects ripe with texture and sensuality. In addition to national international private collections that include his work, Mr. Norviel's paintings hang in the permanent collections of the city of Albuquerque, UNM Hospital and UNM Cancer Center. He was 2012 recipient of the Albuquerque Art Business Association Local Treasure Award and has been selected from numerous juried competitions.
Mr. Noriel graduated from the Art Institute of Boston and the Harvard-Massachusetts General Hospital medical illustration program; he directed the UNM School of Medicine Medical Illustration and Photography Department for over 30 years.
