Laura Newman, ‘Blind’, 2011, IdeelArt

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.

Like an actual window, Blind presents a cross section of light. Newman is interested in the contrast between the translucent ultramarine blue oil paint on top of the white ground, and the saturated acrylic paint stained into the canvas.
