“When you first walk into the new Stephen Newton retrospective you are met with a huge canvas, dominating the wall to your left.
For such a massive space, primarily in hues of white, there is an economy of detail, concentrated in the centre third, vertical section. But it works. Your eyes are drawn to the “Stairway To A Door” (2001) but the white space is equally as important and balances the whole.
At 76” x 110” and £18,000 it won’t fit everyone’s wall or pocket but it costs nothing to look
This is the beauty of having a contemporary art gallery right in the very centre of Grimsby where everyone is welcome – whether you are 5 or 105, an art academic, or think you know absolutely nothing about art.”
