When standing in front of one of Avis Newman's works, it is important to bear in mind the meaning of drawing to the artist, as an act of gesturing; an implosion of thought and an articulation of a moment in time. ⁠⁠

'I understand drawing to evidence the materialisation of an act of consciousness – where the gestured act embodies the act of thought' — Avis Newman. ⁠⁠

This large-scale canvas work is currently showing at Maureen Paley's project space, Studio M, in their East London gallery. ⁠⁠
