My process is an exploration into the utilization of gravity within art, the laws of physics translated to a canvas. More specifically the use of a pendulum to spread paint on a canvas in unique patterns with an emphasis on texture. Jackson Pollock’s Cathedral was an early inspiration for me - seeing that piece at the Dallas Museum of Art was the first time I understood that art is so much more than drawing a pretty picture. Provoking that epiphany in others is what drives me as an artist, and my work is a deconstruction of the notion that art can only be created by the few. It is a fundamental act of expression which we are capable of creating.

Cole Newman is an action painter who works across many mediums, primarily pendulum painting, and hydro dipping. Based out of Dallas, Texas, his artwork has captivated millions of people around the world through his social media channels. He has recently been featured on NBC’s Texas Today, Art Insider, Buzzfeed, Bored Panda, and more. Cole recently held a private event entitled “Triptych” in downtown Dallas where he created 3 paintings in front of a select audience, resulting in positive feedback from guests and collectors.
