Tony Rumball - Selected New Works

Events > Exhibitions

Tony Rumball
at Zimmerman Art Gallery
1 Nov 2017 - 30 Nov 2017

Added by Zimmerman

For the month of November 2017, ZIMMERMAN presents selected new works by Tony Rumball.

This month’s exhibition is large scale and full of colour.

Tony Rumball spontaneously approaches each canvas, first broadly sketching in charcoal or ink, then applying undiluted oil paint with a palette knife. The result is a multi-layered impasto texture, where rich warm tones jostle against cool blues, and big gentle figures emerge from a blizzard of paint.

Rumball’s works focus on the incidents and accidents of everyday life: from the stiff-bodied determinedness of the stout figure in Blue in the Face, to the look of surprise a farmer exchanges with his dog in A Misunderstanding.

Snapshots of human mood and expression, the paintings typically appear off-beat and humorous, yet hints of something deeper and darker also swirl within the psychological mix.

Exhibition runs from 1 to 30 November 2017.
