CLIO NEWTON

“Sometimes I see women on the street, or on the bus, and I think I’d really like to draw them. Maybe it’s a curiosity about who they are or there’s something in the way that they are carrying themselves
that I’m just really drawn to.”

-Clio Newton

“I look for something in the expression that I can really hook onto emotionally and identify with, and I meditate a lot while I’m drawing on what my model is thinking.”

Thivya to scale photo

“I’ve been interested in drawing at a large scale
for a long time. To examine something with a lot of detail and a lot of realism, there’s a moment of abstraction that happens.”
