Fred Cuming

While Cuming’s passion for the sky and the coastline is a regular theme, this exhibition continues his exploration of light and tone and how he represents the natural world and its elevated atmosphere. The East Sussex coastline, in particular the area around Camber and Rye, has provided the backdrop for much of Fred’s work. For his latest show, he returns to Cornwall, Rye and the Kent Coast. Like Turner and Nash before him, he is fascinated by the ever-changing skies formation as well as the subject of the moods he feels around the sea, skies, harbours, marshland, ships and figures wandering on beaches. These subjects are painted loosely with a restricted and light palette creating a dreamy effect. Cuming wrote for the RA ‘I am not interested in pure representation. My work is about responses to the moods and atmospheres generated by landscape.’ Cuming’s powerful imagination continuously absorbs everything that is around him and is clearly demonstrated in his art, however, recently Fred claims it’s only after 50 years, that he is gaining the ability to feel for it.
