Andy Cumming received his BA from Grey’s School of Art in Aberdeen, studying fine art printmaking in Scotland’s only full time printmaking course. He went on to study at Edinburgh College of Art where he completed his MA in fine art printmaking in 2011.
Initially inspired in his prints and paintings by ideas of tacit knowledge and the intuitive way children make art, he then expanded his practice to incorporate video projections and circuit bending performances during his time studying for his Master’s at Edinburgh College of Art.
These explorations of technology and Techno-Paganism- using technology as an immersive experience- continue his interests in examining how cultural constructs such as transhumanism, mimetic’s and social engineering can inhibit perception.
After taking some time out after his Masters to travel around Asia and the United States, he is now back to producing new woodcut prints and mixed media paintings that incorporate his influences in the areas of Psychology and Technology. He was selected to exhibit at the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy’s “New Contemporaries Exhibition 2010” at which he was awarded both the RSA and Edinburgh Printmaking prizes.
