More about Verity Newman
Verity Newman is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Norwich. Her paintings and sculptures reflect three broad themes: function/non-function of objects (and our attachments to them), fading memories of journeys through spaces and places, and the transience of our personal habitats/environments. The rituals and imagined - or reconstructed - histories we create around these fascinate Verity, as well as an increasing need to pin down what 'home' might be. She finds working in layers of colour, pattern and texture almost meditative, and as she originally trained as a sculptor, is led by materials, leaning towards architectural forms, shapes, structures and silhouettes. Through her practice, Verity tries to express the ever-changing evolution, movement and energy of the surrounding environment - and the sense of us within our personal habitats.
Verity has work in important collections in Suffolk and Dublin, Ireland. She has shown her work across the eastern region as well as London and internationally, several times recently in China and Greece.
