Jennifer Riley reviews Laura Newman: New Paintings at Victoria Munroe Fine Art, New York, on view through May 12, 2018.

Riley writes: "Newman conjures varied moods in this show that lead us on non-verbal paths of visual exploration. One painting suggests night walks in a city under construction; others suggest dreamscapes of layered experience; others still are closer to being pure abstraction. Despite being as varied and inventive as they are eccentric and awkward, all her images feel tangible. We can locate ourselves in them."
