In the Couplings series a sense of identity is at play. Couplings will ignite questions of our identity within the relationships we value most. Norod presents a series of mixed media paintings developed from an interactive study of couples. Interviews of these couples were conducted and documented by video, email, or written letter. Norod immersed herself in the dialogues by exploring the intricacies of interpersonal relationships. The couplings included romantic, unique and familial relationships where a multitude of emotions were expressed and then translated abstractly onto the canvas. This series takes a personal and in depth look at the unities formed throughout a relationship and how simultaneously an individual exists inside of a couple.
