Sculptor Norman Mooney Places "Windseeds" at Devos Estate
The piece which consists of three separate eight food diameter cast aluminum isohedrons is the second in a new scluptural direction for Mooney.
BROOKLYN, NY.- Causey Contemporary announced that sculptor Norman Mooney permanently placed his newest sculpture, Windseeds at the Richard and Helen DeVos estate in Michigan.

The piece which consists of three separate eight food diameter cast aluminum isohedrons is the second in a new scluptural direction for Mooney. The first cast aluminum sculpture in this style entitled Star 1 appeared at his two person exhibition, "Falling Short of Knowing" in New York in the autumn of 2008.
Wind Seeds themselves were previously exhibited at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan from September 23 - October 8, 2009. The Devos decided to add it to their collection after viewing the sculpture in ArtPrize.

Mooney says of his recent work, "The sculptures deal with the eternal dichotomy of the present, the immediate moment when we are ultimately becoming and eternally dying at precisely the same time, I am looking to understand the idea of something much larger than ourselves, than our capacity to see, that is ever-present, persistent and constantly in motion. It is our intuitive sense of the whole and our complete inability to define it that the work explores. The Forms are in a state of becoming. In and out of this process of engagement we discover the present. What we intuit, what we feel rather than what we see."

Norman Mooney was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1971. He studied at Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork and completed his BFA at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin in 1992. He then had the distinguished honor of participating in the Third Degree Program at the Irish Museum of Modern Art from 1992 to 1993. In 1994 he relocated to New York City and has been exhibiting locally and internationally for more than 20 years.

Mooney's recent exhibitions include "Carbon Drawings" at Sasha Wolf Gallery in New York, "Absence and Presence" at Causey Contemporary Gallery in New York, "Falling Short of Knowing" show at Milk Gallery in New York, and "Falling Short of Knowing" at Collector's Contemporary in Singapore. Both the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Mint Museum of Art have Norman's work in their permanent collections.

The New Owners of Windseeds are Richard and Helen DeVos of the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. Richard DeVos founded Amway Corp. with friend and business partner, the late Jay Van Andel. The direct selling company now operates in more than 80 countries and territories around the world. DeVos has also owned a number of professional sports franchises, including the Orlando Magic of the NBA.

DeVos and his wife, Helen, generously support hospitals, colleges and universities, arts organizations and in their hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich., as well as in Central Florida. They have helped create the DeVos Children's Hospital, the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences, the DeVos Communications Center at Calvin College, the DeVos Campus of Grand Valley State University, and the DeVos Place convention center. Florida contributions include the DeVos Sport Business Management Program at the University of Central Florida, and the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation.

Now that Windseeds has found a permanent home, Mooney is hard at work on his next sculptural creations which will appear in a solo exhibition at Causey Contemporary in March 2009 at the gallery's new location - 92 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.
