I have been enjoying the work of artist Timothy Cummings for the last two years. These paintings are beautifully painted and very well constructed. These are images of young boys in private moments exploring their sensitive, creative side far from school bullies and worried parents. They are in the moment of discovery before the sock in the eye.
This is an excellent example of a contemporary artist deeply rooted in the past and yet speaking eloquently to the present culture. It is artists like Cummings that help keep up my courage to continue on my own peculiar artistic path.
