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.
