“FOSS FINE ART are delighted to present this new collection of paintings and monotypes, ‘Inner Landscapes’, by Robert Newton. This series of works are a response to his fascination with the ever-changing landscape which surrounds him; working en plein air and in the studio he captures the essence of the weather, natural structures, and water. building up textures by applying oil paint with bold, sweeping, impasto marks using large brushes and palette knives.”
Exhibition dates are Saturday 28 September until Saturday 26 October 2019. Please contact the gallery for further information.

“Robert Newton started showing his understated watercolours with us in 2018 and immediately gathered an enthusiastic following. We’re delighted to be holding his first one man show with us throughout July.”
Robert’s works reflect a continuation of a long-term project; a study of a fixed frame surrounding an evolving panorama. Travelling through the landscape, utilising public transport, especially railways and buses, Robert sketches and photographs a passing window view of the countryside.
