  1. Thank you Andrea. We are working hard to make this site and the Civilization of Llhuros website repositories for Norman’s work and to interest a new audience. You wouldn’t still happen to have your early photos of Llhuros would you?

  2. I am so happy to have discovered this site and to know that Norman’s work lives on. I took classes with him at Cornell including a summer-long one-on-one “Drawing class”. Five days a week I had a discussion and crit with Norman about all kinds of art, analysis of visual things and meaning in art and in life. He gave me the courage to be the artist I dreamed I could be. I was also honored that he chose me to take the first photos of Lhuros. It’s a wonderful project and I’m so glad it is being viewed and appreciated. It’s hard to put into words how important Norman was during a critical moment in my life. I saw him from time to time after graduation. I always remember his concise and insightful comments made during College years and during the many years after.

  3. I was a student of Norman’s at Cornell and had taken at least three of his art courses whilst I in Ithaca between 1973 and 1977. As I write , I ma now 63 and he has never left my side throughout all these years …he was there “in my mind’s eye” as I went to visit art galleries or simply observed a piece of art wherever it was…. in fact in the way I looked at anything structural, such as architecture and form of design.

    What I learned from him is forever embedded in me…so much so, that I can still today recite his “incantations” on color form and space, on verticals and horizontals, the careful use of diagonals, light and dark, the use of texture and of “rhythmic repetition”, the dominant, the subdominant and the minor in composition … and much more.

    He was strict and demanding for sure…but his humility when it came to his own work was striking. I did not do well at all in his Sculpture Class, but came back for more in Painting. It was then that he honored me with appreciation and encouragement. And, I will never forget his “horror” when I came to say goodbye when I graduated from Cornell and told him I had accepted a Job at Procter & Gamble in Marketing.

    Thank you ever so much Norman for the precious gift you gave me.
