“Working primarily with oil on panel, Newman’s subjects appear exceedingly simple; a road going into the distance or a singular boat…however, what resonates is the painterly way Newman works, applying her oils to imply rather than mimic the landscape. There is a passionate and impulsive use of line and color in these works. Newman fully engages the viewer, yet even with all this energy her work maintains a harmonious ambiance.” -Mark Donley, Director, Eno Gallery “Marlise’s work is destined to emerge as some of the regions best, creating natural settings in an expert range of color, merging classical landscape themes in a contemporary manner.” -Artworks on Main
