In this body of work ‘LINE OF THOUGHT’ Dan Newton explores themes around space and the natural landscape. His current work is intended as a picture map.
Newton reimagines natural sites from a birds eye view. He explores how water, time and the volcanic landscape have shaped these places and has created his own visual language to explore these ideas that through time have spoken to him. Through his own use of shape, colour and line he has created his own language of geographical space.
Newton chooses to work on new white paper as well as old carbon copied hand drafted plan drawings. That for him in themselves are affected by the elements and time. Gouache on paper has allowed him to focus on precision and playing with precision.
Opening Event: Wednesday 7 July, 6pm – 8pm
