One Art Space is pleased to present international visual artist, Margrit Newman, "50 pieces and 50 years" her solo art exhibition, which will include 50 select pieces of her work that Newman created over the past 50 years.
Born in Switzerland, Newman has spent her life traveling the world and residing at various periods of her life in Switzerland, France, New York City and Argentina. Her worldly experiences over the last five decades have served as inspiration for her eclectic collection, whose themes include: miniature boxes, musical composition paintings, voodoo, and plant boxes and acrylic paintings with photos incorporated.
Newman attributes her nine years at Galerie Beyeler in Basel/Switzerland, where she met and interacted with world-renowned artists: Giacometti, Henry Moore, Joan Miro, Mark Tobey and many more, for her deep love and inspiration for art.
What has fascinated Margrit as an artist is the limit we draw between reality and abstraction. "This line is very thin, almost non-existent," she says. Margrit believes that in order to better perceive reality, we need to confront it with some kind of abstraction. Margrit is constantly pushing boundaries and exploring different types of art to make us aware of this intricate duality.
Newman's art has been exhibited in galleries worldwide including: Opera Gallery in New York, American Institute of Architecture in Albuquerque/New Mexico, Musee de Saint Paul de Vence in France, Galerie Mara in Fribourg/Switzerland and Lumley Cazalet Gallery in London/England. She has published three books of her work throughout her life-long career in the art world.
