SHOW DATES - September 19 - November 15, 2014
The Ann Tower Gallery is pleased to present Contemplative Places: New Paintings by Mary Newton opening with a Gallery Hop reception for the artist from 5 to 8 pm on Friday, September 19, 2014.
Newton's newest paintings depict empty rooms and outdoor spaces that convey an appealing combination of mystery, calm and tension. Using bold and gestural brushwork and a primarily blue/gray palette, she paints sky, water, expansive walls and beautifully tiled floors. Newton has succeeded in creating alluring, quiet places where we can relax and take some deep breathes; the paintings are at once stimulating and soothing.
Newton explains: "I often use patterns to create order and rhythm along with shifting planes and altered linear perspective, which distort reality and create movement. The combination of architecture and nature is interesting to me and create a visually exciting dialogue."
