The pictured work represents all that I love about Elizabeth Newman’s art. It is small, made of the most basic materials but it points to something beyond her work. Standing in front of it I could not stop myself commenting to a stranger next to me that this would not work well at my place. My walls are manufactured wall sheeting with no texture. Newman turns the work of some tradie from the past into the object of focus indeed a work of beauty. I felt energised as I walked out of this exhibition – mundanity reworked into delightful works of art.
The website says it is on till January 23, Check with the Gallery as pre Covid the gallery usually closed about now and would not open till late February 2022
