I’m proud to have a number of  paintings; new and older works with this distinguished group of painters in a virtual exhibition exquisitely curated by Vivienne Roberts and Rosa JH Berland for Aleph Contemporary.
Now Live: ‘Reflections’ A Virtual Exhibition at Aleph Contemporary, featuring works by Joana Galego, Ben Westley Clarke, Paul Newman and Oliver Dorrell. Curated by Vivienne Roberts and Rosa JH Berland. Click below to go directly into the exhibition!.
.
‘Featuring the work of four contemporary artists –
Ben Westley Clarke, Oliver Dorrell, Joana Galego, and Paul Newman,
the exhibition ‘Reflections’ is a selection of painterly reveries as intimate and mystical portraits of desire and despair. Here in this collection of pictures, we find pastoral interludes under the veil of the mystical, as well as post-apocalyptic and stark scenes of the ordinary rendered in neo-Expressionist and Surrealist form. The artists’ sources are many: contemporary environmental and socio-political crises, city scenes, historic British painting, fifteenth century Indian verse, the work of Arthur Rimbaud, the enduring theme of the journey, the inheritance of Spanish painting as well as the more intimate and autobiographical.’

Delighted to be taking part in ‘Yes/No’ an innovative  virtual open studios exhibition for Contemporary British Painting

Visit the Open studio show here

Including 32 members from the Contemporay British Painting   @paintbritain

Thank you to curators
@judithtuckerart @paula_macarthur and @debcovell and to @heyjoniyouresofine for building the amazing virtual studios.

A painter’s studio is usually a messy experience so this time enjoy floating through this blend of video game and virtual show.
In each studio you’re given a yes/no choice of two further doors to step through, but it’s an open studio in more ways than one!

Excited and a little apprehensive to take part in Peep @ Stryx Live online residency program in June. My week is June 22nd to 26th.

Our third Peep@Stryx artist Paul Newman @paulhnewman.
This week he will be working on his residency entitled ‘Reframing the stage’. The recent lockdown scenario and working from home has created an opportunity to integrate his domestic setting into this narrative and the porting of props and elements from past work and studio space for experimental play at home. Expect monsters and Ford Escort vans and so much more! Artist talk tonight on IGTV 19:30!

The Last Day Revisited on Artsy

Comments Off on The Last Day Revisited on Artsy

I’m delighted to be part of Artsy online exhibition of Aleph Contemporary artists. ‘The Last Day Revisited’
A cross generational group show featuring Willard Boepple, Helen Brough, Jacopo Dal Bello, Dan Coombs, Gordon Dalton, Nelson Diplexcito, Joana Galego, Peter Griffin, Phil King, Lee Johnson, Zebedee Jones, Rebecca Meanley, Paul Newman, Miroslav Pomichal, Katie Pratt, Mark Wright.
Aleph Contemporary is pleased to present its group show ‘The Last Day revisited’
‘In 2012 he (Newman) created a photographic print of his old studio, and during lockdown he has revisited it, painting eerie abstract elements on top of the pre-existing image. A bright and gaudy backdrop featuring psychedelic vases and clementines in crystal bowls has been shrouded in a murky veil twisting and turning with intestine-like tubes. If the original was, as Newman says, a fictional self-portrait, then this queasy update surely visualises him grappling with the strange and uncertain times in which we live.’ – Chloe Ashby
