Artist Profiles

John Newling

Born 1952 Birmingham, England

After completing MA and M.Phil degrees at Chelsea and Wolverhampton he was awarded the first Fulbright Fellowship in Visual Art in 1985. 

Newling constantly reviews ‘The tacit agreements of Place’ and this has coalesced into a view of the pathology of institutions such as banks and churches. His current researches have been into the nature, manifestations and relationships of Currency and Belief. This process of review is the initial impetus for a work for a specific place.

Whilst always underpinned by rigorous conceptual thinking, Newling’s works are always conscious of material, fabrication and architectural space. His sculptural installations are possessed of a quiet beauty that resonate with layers of meaning that are inherent within the form.
