“I draw and paint portraits, maps, and landscapes of states where form meets formlessness between the light of The Intelligence and the womb of unfathomable dark space."
About the Artist
Nora Maccoby is a 4th generation artist. She is both lyrical and studied in her work, drawing lines and paths through universal forces of chaos. Nora focuses on individual states of being, and unveils our journey of evolutionary consciousness. Within the giant landscapes of time and space, she shows us as the seekers, born of light, surfing the galactic waves of creation. Nora uses the Fibonacci Sequence as the keyhole to any subject born of Nature, including faces, birds, and intergalactic wormholes. She works primarily in oil and collaborates with NOIRFLUX to create interactive light sculpture.
"I study the opportunity of existence to evolve and transform, the notion of Internal Activism—that any drive to change the outside must begin within; following the light of The Intelligence, where time and space are the endless playing field for matter to discover itself."
Nora’s work is in many private collections and currently on public exhibition with Uniting US at Ronald Reagan National Airport and Dulles International Airport in Washington DC. She was awarded the International Leonardo da Vinci Prize in Florence, Italy, and has exhibited at the Smithsonian Arts and Industries Museum, the Women’s National Democratic Club Museum, The Temple University Museum in Rome, with Mark Kostabi, and has been featured in LandEscape Art Review. Nora received an MFA from The American Film Institute. She co-wrote the film Bongwater (1998) and Buffalo Soldiers (Joaquin Phoenix, Ed Harris, Anna Paquin), winner of The Evening Standard Award for Best Screenplay of 2003. Her books, The Energy Conversation: The First 3 Years, Identity Cartography: Maps and Symbols for the Heterarchy, and, The Intelligence, are available on Amazon. Nora's latest collaboration, an Oracle deck of her paintings, "Visions of a New Earth," written by Sean Stone and Kaya Leigh, of the Sacred Breath Academy, will be released soon.
“New technology allows greater possibilities for understanding time, space, matter, and light. I see the work of drawing and painting in oils to be the architecture in a technique of enhanced perceptual interactivity that enables new worlds of a point of view. In collaboration with my son, William Hathaway Maccoby in lyrical animation or with NOIRFLUX, whose medium is interaction itself, realized through novel technology implementation responsive to human behavior and environmental sensing, my work in theater, film, technology, fine arts, and moral philosophy have a vehicle for articulating the new realms where science and the divine meet in the evolution of earthlings.”
