Alteronce Gumby's paintings are a vehicle for cosmic exploration

Ashley Tyner, i_D Magazine, September 12, 2022
Inspired by artists like Rothko, Ellsworth Kelly, Alma Thomas and Barnett Newman, Alteronce pushes colour theory into a liberatory space — troubling colour’s use as a tool to interpret human value, and instead using it to transport us past socialstructures into subconscious territories. “We radicalise colour for our own intention,” he says. “We politicise it and use it as a weapon, to degrade one race of human beings from another. So for me to combat that for myself, to liberate myself from these certain notions — especially being a Black man living in America — I have used my work and the vehicle of abstract painting to expand and liberate my own consciousness.”
