'WAYS TO GO' a premier NC exhibition of new work by Marlise Newman
Opening Reception: Friday March 27, 2015 from 6:30 to 7:00 pm
Newman's subjects are exceedingly simple; a road going into the distance or a singular boat...
What resonates is the painterly way Newman works, applying her oils to imply rather than mimic the landscape. There is a passionate and impulsive use of line and color in these works.
In 'Road to Redemption' The vertical road recedes to the distance, while the landscape to the sides of the road are represented by swaths of horizontal planes and broad strokes of tone on tone color, applied in multiple layers then blended and scratched back to reveal previous layers and depth.
The result brings energy and movement to what would otherwise be a static road. Newman fully engages the viewer, yet even with all this energy her work still maintains a surprisingly harmonious feel.
Poetry inspired by Marlise Newmans paintings by John Guzlowski- 7:00 to 7:15 pm
