“A Close Look,” featuring paintings and prints by Fairfield resident and artist Susan Newbold, will be on display in the stairwell of the downtown Fairfield University Bookstore for the month of October.
Newbold’s work is a reflection of her response to nature as a metaphor for life’s organic flow. Through a vocabulary both representational and abstract, she illustrates the vibrant path of valleys, oceans, fields and rocks. In combining monoprints with drawing, painting and other mixed media, Newbold signals the infinite design of the natural landscape. Her intention is to render the joy of creation through the spirit of these elements.
