Biography Newton Stubbing
The British-born artist, Newton Haydn Stubbing, who lived in Spain after World War II, was profoundly influenced by the prehistoric cave paintings at Altamira. Their ritualistic, hand-painted images led him to abandon his brushes, and for twenty years to apply paint to canvas directly with his hands.
These early works, which he called "Ceremonials" and "Rituals" bear some kinship with the Abstract Expressionist movement but, like the cave paintings, evoke sensations of mystery and magic. Some are like vortices of light, outlined by handprints. Others suggest human or animal-like forms, as when the artist, after traveling in the American Southwest, painted a series of images inspired by the Native American "Trickster" legends.
