About this Artwork
Laura Newman's paintings combine geometric delineations of space, ephemeral color fields, dynamic lines and organic forms, resulting in atmospheric images evocative of representational landscapes, but always opening up to something more, something beyond.
In Beach House, the viewer is confronted with dry-brushed structure frames containing chunks of color, suggesting landscape and sails. Cubist frontal planes open onto deeper space. The clear summery light underscores the specificity of the scene.
