Newton’s Painting, Psychoanalysis, and Spirituality published by Cambridge University Press in 2001 is currently being translated into Chinese by Lian Duan at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. Duan translated Peter Fuller’s Art and Psychoanalysis back in the 1980’s.
Stephen Newton’s latest book ART & RITUAL: A Painter’s Journey is published by Ziggurat Books, Paris (illustrations in colour) and has been described by its editor the New York critic and thinker Professor Donald Kuspit as ‘truly major’ and a ‘wonderful book’. Kuspit has described Newton’s paintings thus: ‘The remarkable intensity of Newton’s paint competes with the eerily static objects to unusually uncanny effect. The contradictoriness of Newton’s paintings is an astonishing triumph of expressionism – a genuine tour de force of personal vision and self-objectification, in objects that nonetheless speak of the loss of the self’.
