John Neumann majored in fine art at the University of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The major influences for his work came from Cubism, Abstract Expressionism and Constructivism. About his own work Neumann says. “Every piece of work has its own meaning, but underlying that I strive to achieve a sense of movement, I do not want the work to be static.”
Imagine, if you will, in the piece he calls “The Conductor”, the maestro of a symphony totally immersed in a piece of music, and trying to convey that passion not only to the orchestra, but also to the audience to feel the emotion.
Neumann began exhibiting his work in the seventies and has shown throughout the U.S. and abroad. His work is in many private and corporate collections in the United States, Brazil, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Japan.
