Ronald Newman          

Artist's Statement

Newman has documented - spun out - decades of his life here (his studio), with a constancy of vision that is quite remarkable. He has set about creating other worldly worlds by taking broad cues from occult studies and the lore of ancient cosmologies that ordered the universe through the elements of fire, air, earth and water.

Typically, Newman's paintings are diaphanous, suffused with light and teeming with esoteric data. They seem always to be in a state of flux.

These gentle works of a latter-day mystic deserve a wider audience, one that the luxurious spaces of the Columbus Museum of Art or the Columbus College of Art and Design could provide.
