"Syzygy," William Newman's series of nineteen oil paintings, photographs, and two metal sculptures, is a vibrant rumination on temporality, subjective freedom and natural splendor. The photographs, photorealist paintings and stainless steel sculptures present striking natural objects with personal resonance for Newman. Seen together, photographs that take a click to create and paintings that required years to produce join to represent nature's fleeting beauty, its life through memory and desire, and its timeless eternal renewal.
