wendy newman – lecturer
Wendy Newman has been teaching art for over thirty years within tertiary and secondary education in Devon.
For the last six years she has also taught on the Totnes Art & Design Foundation Course at KEVICC.
Wendy’s particular interest lies in teaching printmaking, drawing and painting and colour theory.
Wendy has worked from and with the landscape since the late 1970’s
Work tends to be started outside working directly onto canvas or paper in the open. It then goes through later changes based on memory, evocation of a place and for the way in which sets of marks and colours work within a given perimeter. Locations are often returned to and familiarity plays a big part of a painting, drawing or print’s progression. Debris contained within a canvas will often reflect the nature of the location and enhance the textural quality of that being depicted. Patterns and shapes, particularly in soil, developed as a result of human intervention interest her as does the walking and the movement and interaction through a landscape. Work attempts to capture something of the vibrancy colour, shape and pattern of these experiences.
