Just nu på GS Stockholm | James Cummins

The works of James Cummins presents the viewer with the physical presence of sculpture while remaining pictorial.These heavily textured paintings are quiet, they whisper rather than shout for attention.Yet the whispering is persistent, the purposeful handling of the paint, its color, texture and shape combine to touch us with the memory of a myth or some half forgotten ritual. He shares Jungs ideas about the collective unconscious and the traces of emotional, mystical ideas in his paintings seem to offer a decipherable code of meaning and hope in a world of materialism and crisis.
