Nora Pauwels has been a printmaker since 1978, focusing primarily on etching.

Past exhibitions featuring her work include Interplay at Kala Institute in Berkeley (2008), Cultivating Creativity at the Yuerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco (2007), Radical Printmaking at the Art Commission Gallery in San Francisco (2000), Flight 2000 at Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois (2000), and Tallin Print Triennial, in Tallin, Estonia (1998).

Her work is also included in the Frans Mazereel Grafiek Collection in Belgium, the Achenbach Collection in San Francisco, and the New York Public Library.  In 2009, she received a commission from The City of Emeryville’s Arts in Public Places Program to exhibit her drawings in four new bus shelters.

Born in Belgium, Nora lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.  In 2004 she began drawing exclusively and has only recently returned to printmaking, which she now aims to infuse with the immediacy of drawing.

“Four Short Films is informed by Duchamp’s investigations into dimension.  A flat plane, a perspective, a shape and a shadow.   Or:  Flat, less flat, fire and a zebra.  ”.    John & Nora
