Tom Newby works in a broad range of media. His efforts range from installation and sculptural assemblage to figure drawings and painting. His current series utilizes appropriated images from the corporate landscape to reinterpret classic themes from art history.
In this exhibit Tom Newby continues his exploration of classical themes in western art through the prism of the contemporary corporate landscape. Along with paintings from his “Ubiquitous Figure Series” this exhibition introduces nine newly created works based on figures found in Greek mythology.
Tom Newby lives and works in Wilmington, Delaware.
