Cuming, Simon Date
2015 See full details
This work Untitled is from his series Boutique Abstraction where Cuming takes each work through a series of prolonged transformations during its production - using several techniques, from stencils, to prints, to paints to create the finished piece. This laboured method results in a work visually reminiscent of early Modernist paintings. Cuming emphasises both the flat-plane optical experience of the work, rather than the painting being metaphorical, and the process of making the work over the end result.
