The central aspect of Visa Norros’s work is found in the fact that he is working with print-making as a creative medium, not as a technique for multiplication or duplication. The gestures and timing of his work process, as well as the claims and qualities of his materials, appear directly in the finished works. The nature of doing his art thereby produces pictures that come close to pictures of nature itself.

In this way, Norros is working in a romantic tradition that is comparable to methods and results we can find, for example, in the paintings of William Turner. Likewise, these monotypes are activating our own personal history of looking. For example, the experience of driving a car during the night or watching infrared war-pictures, experiences that bring back a lonely awareness of being a part of a cosmos that is still an enigma.
