Derek Norsworthy is an artist born and raised in Oklahoma, now living in Boise, Idaho. He studied art at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, a liberal arts college. His unique, often transgressive vision is most often fulfilled by expressionistic, abstract works that convey the existential turbulence of modern times while maintaining a connection to the human. He is adept in several mediums, but has concentrated the last few years on highly kinetic, graceful wood sculptures and explosive, colorful acrylic paintings. His bold, energetic style is consistent throughout all of his work, whether it be paintings, sculptures, printing, drawings, or photographs.
