Spinning: Nature, Culture and the Spiritual in the work of John Newling

Richard Davey

John Newling has constantly pushed at the boundaries of art. He has grown a hydroponic vineyard in a redundant church, covered two pence coins with paracetamol, turned the waste product from communion wafer production into a sculptural material, and grown a lemon tree in homemade soil.

This book, by Richard Davey, is the first substantial overview of these mysterious, intriguing, and often beautiful works. Fully illustrated in colour throughout, it explores the major themes that have underpinned Newling’s extensive output.
