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.

When Nemwan found out that the low building in front of hers was going to be torn down for a new condo, she decided to make a series of small paintings on panel that would respond to the building site as it underwent demolition.

Five Marks is an abstract response to its brief incarnation as an empty field. Paint is matte; color is high key; mark-making is simple and direct.
