The heart of the artist’s work lies in the subversive variation of everyday objects. Highlighting the futile and forming a reappropriation of the essential value of the useful.
The “Industrial Home Made”, as he calls it, is the mechanical embodiment of the structure on which our consumer society is based.
Accumulation, scaling and deliberately industrial materials, the common ground which remains is the violence of brand identity and the style guides used in the marketing world. The interpretation proposed by Luke Newton finds meaning in the association of extremes. For the consumer society is governed by legal texts that generate a perversion and abuse of common sense.
The frantic repetition of works by the artist, as a life-cycle conditioning, reminds us of the current media blitz. The short-term pleasure that takes us away from our dreams.
How can we see the horizon with a stiff neck?
Luke Newton, British artist, lives and works in Paris. He is graduate of the school Saint Martins in London.
