Roger Newton

Opening on March 23 at David Zwirner is an exhibition of works by New York-based artist Roger Newton. This will be the artist's first one-person show here in the gallery.

Roger Newton's rejection of standard photographic imaging systems, speaks of a desire to reorganize the primary and unconscious act of looking. His photographs challenge our assumptions about photography as a medium of representation and the nature of representation itself. In these works, we are placed in the position of trying to make sense of what we see: to describe the world around us and locate ourselves in it. Therefore, a tension exists between the abstractness of the work and the nascent figuration of the composition, and at the same time the expectation that a photograph must record objective reality with some sort of fidelity.
