Christopher Newman has an architect’s eye. His work often relates directly to the man-made constructions that surround his work.

“Crossing V” explores the relationship between the human figure and abstract imagery. Crossing V is a study of how the size and direction of forms express the contrast of flesh and bones to steel and concrete. Without realizing it, we experience this contrast daily. We are the embodiment of this when we walk down the sidewalk in between the cars and buildings, when we are in meetings, when we gesture as we speak, and when we are seated among desks and chairs. With yellow automotive paint and smooth aluminum surfaces, it stands out from buildings surrounding it. These bright features catch the attention of pedestrians as well as drivers.
