Known for his uninhibited fusion of unusual and traditional materials with an equally diverse set of technical strategies, Kori Newkirk's work includes sculpture, mixed media photographs and works on paper. Creating tension between the narrative weight of materials and formal abstraction, Newkirk's practice opens up a dynamic swath of conceptual territory where history, technology and socio-economic considerations collide freely with artistic practice and visual pleasure. For this new body of work, Newkirk turns his attention to the wheel and its multiple values as a literal and metaphorical vehicle for narrative, its rigidity as a core element of geometry, and its openness as a shape deeply charged with symbolic value.
