Fred Cuming - A Passion for Coast and Sky

About

Fred Cuming is a vital part of the English landscape painting tradition. Like John Constable and Alexander Cozens before him, he is fascinated by cloud formations — such as feather and wing shapes in the sky. Cuming remains ‘terribly moved' by landscapes and his motivation is to communicate that to people through his painting. By his explorations of light and colour, he conveys a ‘visual magic'. He has always been fascinated by the changing landscape around us: the skies, fabulous rainbows and wonderful rapid violent storms. After a lifetime of exploring these subjects, only now is he finally gaining the ability and clarity to find ‘little tracks' of his own to follow. Inspired by masters of colour such as J.M.W. Turner, Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse and Paul Nash, Cuming explains ‘Marvellous colourists are few and far between — I would love to be one!' Cuming's major subject is how to use colour and light in his painting to represent the natural world.
