“My paintings are the poetry of my interpretations of reality. After several years of formal academic training, I often take my work toward the more contemporary, non-classical style.
This is accomplished by combining structure of form along with an organic, reactive approach to color and value. While my still life’s adhere to the traditional, I incorporate contemporary design.
“Objects in Space” are a departure from reality in that I allow my reactions to take the painting to places I cannot preconceive as I focus only on the essentials. My exhibition, “The Beginning” is a mix of my evolving styles however I always stay true to tradition and paint only from life.”
All pieces are for sale through the gallery by appointment. They will also be available to view online at https://www.newtonroux.com/collect
