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 Room, the artist uses a vocabulary of geometric form and stained color traditionally associated with Modernist paintings’ investigation of the surface of a painting to create an experience about the activity of seeing and representing space.
In this work, Newman is interested in the dialogue between the flat surface of the picture plane and the illusion of a spatial world that it can evoke. Stains of translucent acrylic paint interact with crisp mechanical line and a hard-edged sequence of colored shapes implies a corner that leads to a schematic mirror.
