Minimalist Oil on Canvas "Heft" ,2018 by BT Newton, Black & White Abstract



Stunning oil on canvas work by contemporary New York artist, B.T. Newton, entitled "Heft." Matte, black, light-absorbing impasto piled to a sweet hilltop near the upper limit of the canvas. Newton uses the heavy pigment with an ease and poetry however that relieves the viewer from what might otherwise be a somber experience. Slight flicks of the wrist and what seem like flourishes, imperfections even, give this composition a weightless quality, as though emanating light. Newton hovers between landscape and complete abstraction here but was, in his own words, "definitely inspired by the liminal space between interior and exterior, between the constructed and the most basic, primordial thing... I thought about the Walter De Maria's "Earth Room" nearby here in New York one of my favorite interiors.".
