Deep Springs are Everywhere, Offering Our Imaginations to Draw Upon
Newberry works the human body like a surgeon’s intricate incisions.Thodoris Archontopoulos, Byzantine Archaeologist and Art Historian, Ministry of Greek Culture
These drawings span a few decades from 1977 til now.
These ink, charcoal, Conte, and graphite drawings are a few from thousands. They range from 1-minute gesture sketches to carefully finished works taking more than 25-hours to complete. They explore line, observation, depth, anatomy, gesture, concepts for paintings, shadows, body expressions, triangulation, or themes. I use drawings to accomplish something specific. In John’s Sunset I prepared for taking along as it would take to fully explore the loss of my brother. If I only have 5 minutes I might only concentrate on line, shadow groups, or gesture. But whatever I am focused on it is to do or learn something new.
