Maria Nordman: Saddleback Mountain

Interview with Maria Nordman, Barbara Haskell, and Hal Glicksman
Published by © 1973 University Art Gallery, UC Irvine


In an interview with Maria Nordman, Barbara Haskell, Curator of the Pasadena Musuem of Art, and Hal Glicksman, Director of the Art Gallery, University of California, Irvine, pry for answers and share their interpretations of Nordman’s work.  Haskell describes Nordman’s construction, which is visually and spacially perplexing.  It invites viewers to wander into the constructed space and thus instantaneously experience abstract art in a new way.  Viewers perceive themselves as part of an entirely different world where their intellectual apparatus is denied any time to compute information.
