Based in Nottingham, John Newling began his practice in the late 1970s as a pioneer of socially engaged art.

John has explored value systems, such as money and religion, that underpin contemporary society. Over the last 15 years, Newling has made a series of ‘ecology works’: poetic paintings, sculptures, and installations, using plants grown in his own garden that petition society to adopt a value system based on nature.

Also featuring archive material recently acquired by the Henry Moore Institute archive, this exhibition is developed in collaboration with Beam, a contemporary art gallery and publisher located at Primary, Nottingham.
