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 High Beams, color is saturated, space is warped; lines are active and almost three-dimensional. Pressed against the picture plane, the scene implies a frictionless, vast space, suggesting speeding on a highway at night.
