Tina Newlove Artist

Whats new in 2019...

The themes relate to the intersection of work and family, alienation in modern society and the necessity of withdrawing into nature. I am interested in friends grouping together and grassroots movements.

At first glance, the viewer sees an abstract patterning of layered colour in the paintings. On closer inspection, there are small homes perched on the shoulders of figures, women concerned for their children and birds flying around the neighbourhood. Moments of rest in busy days.

The work is concerned with inclusion, safe spaces, fleeing and rehoming. Figures embedded in undulating landscapes navigate their way towards an uncertain future. Searching for home, is it in your heart, is it a place or is it present in the people you are with?
