From the artist’s studio
Sharon Butler, founder of the Two Coats of Paint project, wrote the following about Laura Newman in 2012: “Laura Newman’s color has always been sweet but brittle...the seemingly casual color shapes pulsate, gnash, and hover, like the pigeons she watches outside her Williamsburg studio…[Newman’s paintings] at first delight, then purposely confuse our expectations, leaving us to sort out the point of view, the enigmatic shapes, and the hints of narrative on our own. These paintings are a gentle reminder that things aren’t always as they seem.”

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 Birds, whorls and pours of translucent paint activate a crisp field of pure white oil paint. For a long time Newman has felt that a painting comes alive when she can feel the space in it. In her own words: "I would like to be able to paint air, but in order to paint air I realized that I needed to paint things in it."
