Laura Newman, ‘Touch’, 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.

In Touch, a translucent green form nudges a yellow pour that shelters a linear three-dimensional cube. Per the artist, the painting conveys the feeling of a chain reaction about to happen, of watching and waiting.
