“I first learned about Boston-based artist Hilary Tait Norod through her dad, an architect at Elkus Manfredi when I was working on a story for the Boston Globe about transforming old buildings into home.

Since then I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on the  Webster Art Project at Boston Design Center. There are currently three of her paintings in the Webster & Company showroom (one sold!)

Hilary Tait Norod’s solos show “Are You Crazy With Me?” opens this weekend, Saturday, April 16th, 5pm – 9pm at Jerome Street Studios in Medford, Mass. Hilary’s new body of work is inspired by studies of the human mind. The series focuses  specifically on the theories behind the correlation between insanity and creativity.

Norod presents a series of mixed media paintings that evolved from portraiture studies of brilliant minds who have walked the line of insanity into more abstract pieces of her own theories, experiences, and explorations.”

Here is a preview of her new paintings:

Poe

Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence– whether much that is glorious– whether all that is profound– does not spring from disease of thought– from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect. —Edgar Allen Poe
