29 September – 2 October 2022

Room with Open Door, 1997

The art critic Mel Gooding described Newton’s painting as a “psycho-conceptual project”. They explore primitive manic states; isolation; disassociation; loss; fear; loneliness and supplication, themes containing sinister elements common to us all.

Through years of contemplation and engagement with painting and drawing, Newton has distilled that fusion between the physical and intellectual in the creative process – the essence being a reduction to primitive, almost primeval, images of immense power.

Bermondsey Project Space will be exhibiting a collection of Stephen Newton’s paintings, drawings and etchings at this year’s British Art Fair, hosted by Saatchi Gallery. Ranging in date from the mid-90s right up to present, Newton’s works will be viewable at Stand 9 in Solo Contemporaries section of the fair. 

Newton exhibits regularly in London and around the UK, with examples of his work held in both public and private collections in the UK and the USA.
