Luce Artist Biography

Howard Newman studied silversmithing at the Rhode Island School of Design. After graduating in 1971, he received a Fulbright grant to study in Italy and spent a year working in the Tuscan foundries. His work is influenced by his experience as a Jewish American, appreciating all the freedoms of this country but living under the shadow of twentieth-century history. His dark and threatening images of women and animals as warriors suggest a deep-seated fear of modern technology.
