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.
With its stripped down vocabulary, Glass Wall suggests a model or diagram even as it evokes a particular, fictional place. A series of black squares transform into colored paintings when viewed through the glass wall of a gallery. Warm indoor light and cool outdoor light contrast.
