Norbert Marszalek received a BA from Northeastern Illinois University in 1985. He is currently based in Chicago and has for the last couple of years been working on a series of paintings called Hotel Room Paintings.
Important to the series is that hotel rooms are transitory dwellings—a place to call home for a day, a week or even many months, but always in a more detached way than a permanent dwelling. We use hotel rooms for numerous reasons well-known, but eventually we play out our scene and the stage is set for the next traveler.
His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across the United States, including the George Billis Gallery in Los Angeles, the Holter Art Museum in Montana, South Bend Regional Museum of Art in Indiana, and Bowery Gallery in New York City.
