John Newling: Ecology Works
Library Shelf Location 18.NEWL
Publication Date 2020

Ecology Works chronicles almost 20 years of artworks where nature and the growing of plants lie at the core of the artist’s work.

Newling has created a hydroponic vineyard in a church, grown and then gilded Jersey Kale cabbages, created a language from plants, grown the world’s most nutritious plant – Moringa Oleifera – and transformed them into dazzling collages and paintings.

Newling’s work is a poetic and philosophical appeal for humankind to recognise our place within nature and calls for a new system of value for the future.
