COLOUR FROM COAST TO COAST: ALICE MUMFORD

With an essay by Ian Massey
Publication date: 28 September 2015 Price: £20

'I delight in the mark-making of Alice Mumford. Her brush strokes animate the surface of paper, canvas and board. These brush strokes, laden with colour, focus on the ways in which colour intensifies the expression of light falling on any surface. The light of day is a basic and integral part of Creation. Alice Mumford sees it as a blessing. She knows full well that it has the capacity to reveal the innate nature of visual reality. It transforms our concept of the temporal passage of time to lead us to the consideration of the eternal timespace. Alice Mumford should be regarded as a gifted choreographer. Her chosen objects are certainly not still. They have a shimmering quality suggesting almost imperceptible movement.'
Professor Richard Demarco

When I stop and look at light bouncing of a coloured cloth, the shapes outside the window lit up, the richness and colour of the different objects on the table, yellow- green pears, a glass jug, a black cup, maybe tulips or pink campion, it calls me to paint. Colour and light, warm and cool; the relationship of the objects, one to another, the space around them and how this relates to me: it excites and absorbs me.
