Norman Zammitt's Yellow Burning 1974-1981 Acrylic on Canvas
Norman Zammitt was born in Toronto, Canada. He was raised in New York State before finding himself ( at 14 years old ) moving to California with his family. Norman studied at Pasadena City College before finishing his MFA Degree over at Otis Art Institute in 1961. Color relationship was his expertise. Zammitt’s mathematical color combinations produce the illusion of deep dimensionality and dramatic optic effects. Landscape inspired him to create these precise abstract stripped paintings. Many of Norman's mural sized paintings portray scenes of nature such as sunsets, and deserts.
Norman passed away in his home in Pasadena, California at age 74. Yellow Burning is over at display in the Seattle Art Museum
