Timothy Cummings renders exquisitely crafted narrative and portrait paintings on panel which decidedly defy his lack of formal training. The subjects of his work are often children and adolescents struggling with issues of sexuality and sexual orientation in an adult world. Throughout the United States Cumming's work has exhibited at LACE Gallery (Los Angeles, CA); the Laguna Art Museum (Laguna Beach, CA); the Hunterdon Art Museum (Clinton, New Jersey); and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco, CA). In 2013, Cummings was an artist-in-residence and subject of a solo exhibition at Transarte Institute in São Paulo, Brazil. His work is represented in the permanent collection of Di Rosa Gallery in Napa, California and in the personal collection of Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson, owners of the 21c Museum Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. Cummings' exhibitions have been reviewed in the San Francisco Examiner, Artweek, Art Papers, Flash Art, and Details. He has had numerous solo exhibitions at Nancy Hoffman Gallery in New York and at Catharine Clark Gallery, both of whom represent his work. Timothy Cummings was raised in New Mexico, but made his career as an artist during the past two decades living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2014, Cummings returned to Albuquerque, New Mexico where he currently resides.
