Artist Name: Gloria Newton
Medium/Technique: Acrylic Paintings
I’m constantly looking for the abstractions in nature, the shadows and shapes in everyday objects like the wild grapevines I see on my walks through the park. I use them for inspiration, literally seeing them in a different light.
Many of my paintings begin with active black line. I’m stimulated by the extreme contrast between the black line and the white surface, letting it suggest shape and motion to me. Adding colors and defining shapes helps bring structure to the piece. I want references to the multitude of changes, decisions and traces of the process to show through the work. Most of my work is on canvas, or wood panel using acrylic, and /or mixed media.
