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 Still Life, a cubic structure is composed of a series of abutting planes, punctuated by holes. Like a Bauhaus light modulator or a traditional still life, the structure serves as an opportunity to explore a range of approaches to color and form.
