Sound Passage, 30” x 48”, Acrylic on Canvas

Nancy Newton
Sound Scape - inspired by R. Murray Schafer’s Dream-e-scape

Oct 17 - Nov 4, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 20, 1-4 pm
Artist Talk: Sunday, November 4, 2 pm

Propeller Gallery: 30 Abell St., Toronto ON M6J OA9

Nancy Newton’s drawings and paintings explore the many visual sound scapes suggested by the instrumentation, sound and felt emotional content of R. Murray Schafer’s musical composition entitled Dream-e-scape. Monochromatic interpretations using India ink, metallic acrylic paint and pastel on paper inspired mixed media canvases using modelling paste, gesso, acrylic and metallic paint. As the imagery on the canvases emerged, the music was turned off and the artist explored and developed a visual interpretation of the sound scapes one by one in silence.

Historically Newton’s work has focused on the gestural depiction of space within the context of landscapes that reconnect the viewer to the mystery, beauty and power of nature on earth. This recent in-depth examination of one twenty minute musical composition broadens the dialogue on how sounds can be interpreted visually to create spaces from another world.
