Kayla Newell

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday March 02
Mark Woolley Gallery @ Pioneer
700 SW 5th Ave., 3rd floor, Pioneer Place Mall
 
A rising star in Portland's art constellation, Kayla Newell mounts a strong showing of mixed-media drawing/painting hybrids at Mark Woolley’s gallery at Pioneer Place Mall. In fantastical mountainscapes such as Stone Pile and Ascend, she uses paint drips to suggest waterfalls and majestic, Middle Earth-like vistas. Her work has a similar feel to that of fellow Portland artists Adam Sorensen and Anna Fidler, but with the addition of meticulously rendered geometric motifs, glitter and sludgy black paint covering up intricate structures beneath. One of Newell’s pieces is called Nihilism/Existentialism, but there is nothing sinister or depressing about this brightly hued, materially inventive show.Through  March 10.
