James Lumsden
&Gallery, 17 Dundas street, Edinburgh
Running from May 7 – 30
Preview May 6, 2-4pm

Edinburgh based artist James Lumsden creates paintings and literal landscapes on the canvas. His work is primarily concerned with process – building translucent glazes of paint until an illusion of light and depth are achieved. The process involves the application of multiple (up to 40 or more) thin glazes of acrylic paint and gloss medium. Each layer is dragged, pulled or manipulated with various implements – this being repeated layer upon layer until the painting begins to emerge.
