  • Catalogue Essay

    Marc Newson’s “Extruded Table 3” is a conceptual rendering of a process completely at odds with the table's actual production and materiality. Newson was attracted to marble’s associations with significant monumental works, high levels of craftsmanship and historic durability. However, as marble cannot be extruded, Newson’s adoption of the term is in service to his communication of a two-dimensional idea in a three-dimensional context. With noted similarity to the “Event Horizon” series, these works in marble distill many of the themes present in Newson’s earlier work—voids, negative versus positive space, and stunning feats of fabrication. He has said “The earlier aluminum works were all about what was going on inside. I was trying to create the illusion that the interior was bigger than the exterior. Now I see that the new marble works are dealing with the same ideas but in different ways.”(Marc Newson, exh. cat., Gagosian Gallery, New York, 2007, pp. 71-72)
