Biography

Alteronce Gumby is an abstract contemporary artist, working across mediums and disciplines. His work explores the visual and societal references of color and form; his paintings subvert traditional understandings of light and color through the nuanced application of glass and paint directly with the artist's hands. This unique technique stems from the artist‘s concern of constantly redefining color’s meanings and its grounding within society. Challenging both mind and eye of the viewer, his works push the boundaries of color and form through their intricate web of darkness and light, spatiality and experience. Through his chromatic spectrums of iridescent color, the artist wishes to engage the viewer and expand the notions through which we perceive form and color, race and identity.
