Rebecca Cuming b. 1956
Rebecca Cuming's ethereal paintings hover between abstraction and representation. Inspired by nature and landscape, her subject matter includes butterflies, fruit and flowers. Cuming approaches this imagery with a delicate hand, and her subtle abstractions comment on the conventional associations between nature and femininity.
Cuming is originally from Middletown, New Jersey, and now lives and works in Broomfield, Colorado. She received her BFA in 1980 from the School of Visual Arts, and studied at the Art Students League in Manhattan and the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Her work has been exhibited at the National Gallery, the Sumner Museum and the Senate Building in Washington, DC, as well as the The State Capitol, Denver, CO; the Arvada Center for the Arts, Arvada, CO; Lincoln Center, Fort Collins, CO; and Dairy Arts Center, Boulder, CO, among others.
