The large canvases painted by Gummersall are filled with gestural brushstrokes that may suggest symbols or signs, often capturing the feel of quickly-drawn graffiti. But this sense of immediacy is contrasted by the artist’s practice of building on his elements: he erases nothing, layers, his paint, and allows the history of his marks to remain visible. The sense of play evoked in each Gummersall painting is one of substance and meaning. With Solo exhibitions dating as far back as 1978, from Colorado to Chicago, California to New York, Austria, Germany, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Arizona, C. Gregory Gummersall has certainly made his mark on the art world.
