Christopher Newberry – Transitions

2 Apr 10:00 AM 14 Apr 4:00 PM

Christopher Cristóbal Newberry brings his ever-evolving work, encapsulated in this exhibition,  which depicts different phases of his artistic development.  He is fascinated by symmetry, repetitiveness, cycles, change, progression. His use of intense colour is very much influenced by his upbringing in Mexico, but his interests in truth, reality, perception and beliefs have been developing over the years, especially since the media advent of ‘post-truth’.

As he puts it, he is “pulling at the heartstrings with the neurons of the mind”.  Christopher says “a photograph is literally light that has bounced off reality and into the camera”.  He transforms this reality into either impossibly ‘perfect’ images or into abstractions. According to Garry Kenard, director of Art and Mind, “in Newberry’s pictures all aspects of the image are enhanced, from heightened colours to exaggerated symmetry to sharpened horizons and outlines. All of this leads to an art which can transform our emotional perception of the material world”.

Christopher was born and brought up in Mexico City.  He studied Communications at the Universidad Iberoamericana. He has directed documentaries for Mexico’s cultural television channels and in London he has worked as a freelance photographer and designer. He has exhibited extensively in Mexico City, London and Winchester.
