Artist Statement

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.
She often starts a painting with an abstract idea such as “expansive horizontal forms in coloring book colors that pretend to be unaware of each other but aren’t.” As she works, motifs appear and disappear. At some point, she understands what the painting is going to be about, and then she gets rid of everything that is extraneous to that idea. Often subject matter leaks into a work without her actually putting it in...
Billboards are flat planes that frame images. They can also be read metaphorically, as stand-ins for paintings.
