New Work - Sculpture
Maureen Paley is pleased to announce the representation of Avis Newman and to present The Weight of Souls I (2017-18) in Studio M, the gallery’s project space in Shoreditch, East London.
Avis Newman’s work is rooted in the conceptual space of drawing and incorporates canvas works, objects and works on paper. Her longstanding influences come from the symbolic worlds of ancient cultures and an interest in fundamental ideas of origin - as embodied in the moment of initial tracing and the genesis of the mark.
Newman’s works are part of museum and public collections including the Arts Council Collection, UK; British Council Collection, UK; Tate, UK; Weltkunst Collection, Zurich; Berardo Collection, Lisbon, Portugal; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Park; Washington DC, USA; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA.
