James Lumsden: Reflexion

Holly Johnson Gallery

May 19 - July 28, 2018

An exhibition of new paintings by artist James Lumsden. "Lumsden's paintings continue to investigate how raw materials innate to the medium can be turned into something poetic - an object filled with light, feeling, atmosphere, and emotion. Led by his chosen medium and a deep understanding of the subtleties and contradictions of the painted surface, Lumsden expands the possibilities of the medium through adept experimentation."
