Centring around notions of failed perfection

 

 

 

Gemma Cumming graduated in 2006 from Loughborough University School of Art and Design with a BA in Fine Art. Her work deals with notions of anticipation and tourism, utilising tourist imagery to create giant painted postcards with an ominous twist.

Her work primarily explores imagery that sells an expectation of a place, not its reality. Creating tension by replacing the stereotypical blue skies with darker and more ominous ones, adding other incongruous objects and highlighting people passivity to their unusual environment the viewer is forced to look again at the scene.
