Susan Newbold is a painter and printmaker whose work explores the organic flow of nature. She combines representational and abstract techniques to portray the vibrant forms inherent in the natural landscape. Newbold breaks the rules of traditional, linear narrative and favors organizing space lyrically. She captures the essence of natural forms by embracing their innate contradictions. The artist’s inventive blending of media signals the infinite flow of natural forms. Her mark-making celebrates the repetitive nature of growth, and her varied use of line and color invite the viewer into its variety. Newbold strives to express the joy of creation through the spirit of these elements.
