In a 1986 New York Times review of a solo show of Newell’s work, Helen A. Harrison wrote: “The long-term, single minded pursuit of a narrow, self- imposed esthetic discipline is rare among visual artists, most of whom undergo the periodic changes in style or viewpoint that we associate with a developing career. Those uncommon few who commit themselves to an approach at once so clearly defined and so personal that it seems to exist outside of time exert a special fascination, especially on the imaginations of their fellow artists. As Morandi represents the ideal ‘painter’s painter’ for the gestural realists, so we might think of Roy Newell as a paragon for the geometric abstractionists” (“When a Period Lasts a Lifetime, ” August 31, 1986).
