Vertical Landscape by Norman Gibson

 Vertical Landscape by Norman Gibson

Gibson's sculptures and wall reliefs are typically constructed in painted wood, sometimes incorporating found objects. They explore themes related to landscape, archaeology and visual memory.

Vertical Landscape has a complex composition which incorporates references to the sea, with forms suggesting harbours and boats, as well as a sunny inland landscape. The built environment is also evoked with an architecturally framed distant vista in the upper segment. The location is not specific, it invites a response from the viewer's own store of recollected images and memories.
