John Newman   Spoonfuls; March 24 – April 30, 2016

The Tibor de Nagy Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by the much admired sculptor John Newman. The exhibition will be his third with the gallery. It will comprise twelve new sculptures completed over the last year that all reference spoons, even if very loosely. The artist has called the spoon-shaped works “offerings.” Unlike his larger sculptures of recent years, the new pieces are small in dimension and intimate in feel. They all have exquisite detail, and are full of unexpected juxtapositions.


Newman integrates an array of materials from the traditional to the exotic.  Materials can include found objects and industrial “accidents” such as discarded extruded aluminum, and his various processes incorporate unusual techniques ranging from the hand-built to the computer generated. 

John Newman’s work has been the subject of over 50 one-person exhibitions and numerous group shows throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.  His work has been included in major museum exhibitions and is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum, and the Tate among others.  He received a BA from Oberlin College and an MFA from Yale University of Art. His work is currently on view in a solo exhibition at the Beeler Gallery at Columbus College of Art and Design, and in September an exhibition will open at the Akron Art Museum.
