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.”

ABSTRACT PAINTING
Download PDF
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 Viewing Platform, juxtaposed bands of color confirm the surface of the painting as a plane while the depiction of the metal frame of the billboard wraps around the side of the stretcher. Here, the artist is interested in the opposition of the two dimensionality of the painted surface and the three dimensionality of the painting as an object.
