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.

Interior with Paint Chips explores the idea of an interior as a container. Under an arch punctuated by doors and windows and furnished with luminous blocks of color, an array of approaches to painting is consolidated - from translucent pours to hard-edged rectangles, scraped viscous oil paint and dry-brushed ink.
