  • Writings by John Newling 1995-2005 (2005)

    Over the past ten years John Newling has adopted a method of working that sees him recording his thoughts, ideas and observations as a prelude to the production of art works. For Newling, this method of writing before producing work has become an essential research tool that sets the scene and defines the works. The notes have been edited into essays that form a reflective journal. Although each one relates to a specific artwork, they also stand alone as essays that ask questions of us all.
