Norville’s collages strike deep. Playful imagery masks deeper commentary. Close looking pays off in complex stories that unfold in interesting ways. The best feedback Dominique Norville ever received was when one viewer told her, “Now I know what collage is for.” A portfolio of her work appears in Kolaj 26.
