About the Artist
"… his view is unique and well executed. The voice of these paintings is clear and sound. They are all … concerned with the potential for human habitation." Allen Baldwin, Casco Bay Weekly
Andy Newman has been painting for almost 20 years. He is self-taught, and his painting career follows his first career as an attorney in Washington, D.C. He exhibits his work in galleries in England, France, Italy, Portugal,and Canada, as well as throughout the northeastern U.S.
As my career as a painter has developed, I have worked in three genres, figures, abstract, and landscape, and it is landscape that provides the focus of this exhibition. Many of my landscapes are anchored by architectural subjects, which allow me to center my interest on form, light and compo- sition, with less stress upon the particulars of a given locality. Thus it is with architecture that I can feel most abstract. What drives the image is the array of shapes and how they occupy the picture plane, rather than whether a building or road hap- pens to be in France, Spain or England. Since architectural subject matter lends itself to the composing of forms within a space, I have over the years returned again and again to the same buildings to produce closely related images.
