Stephen Newby

Stephen Newby’s aim to challenge preconceived notions about the nature of materials and their possible forms has been the focus of his work to date, he has produced sculptural works which have varied from studio pieces to larger scale public art.

With a fascination for manipulating materials to create objects that defy the gaze, his work has more recently extended to focus on other reflective forms. Explorations in lighting attempt to set up contradictions of form, material and scale while articulating what he describes as the “transformative space that occurs in the ephemeral relationships between object and viewer, sculpture and space”.

Stephen Newby's Beating Heart will feature on our Festival site this year.
