Historical Context:
Internationally known as a painter and printmaker, Sorman earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Minnesota in 1971. Art critic and curator Mason Riddle noted the subtle evolution and reinvention of Sorman, as he wrote: “Where some artists make a career out of bold stylistic shifts, Sorman excels in a consistency of artistic practice. With the eye of a connoisseur, he discriminately borrows formal elements from the aesthetic trove of his past to create a more visually compelling present. His creative slate is never wiped clean, only refined. While a new spirit is often evident, it is one that is confident with the past.” Sorman was the GVSU Stuart B. Padnos Chair from 2007-2011.
