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.
Drybrush with Building belongs to a group of works on paper in which Newman attempted to capture the brisk atmosphere of Deer Isle, Maine.
The stacked windows of a building face onto a white field in which gestural brushstrokes cohere and separate.
