Alteronce Gumby’s (1985, Harrisburg, PA) paintings focus on representation of the self and subvert the traditional understanding of light and color through nuanced application of tonal changes directly with the artist’s fingers and hands. Gumby graduated from Yale University’s MFA program where he was awarded the Robert Reed Memorial Scholarship after earning a BFA from Hunter College, New York, NY and, in 2017, completed a year-long residency as the Harriet Hale Woolley scholar at the Fondation des Etats-Unis in Paris, France. He was granted the AAF/Seebacher Prize for Fine Arts as well as the Dumfries House Residency, Ayrshire, Scotland in 2015. Gumby has recently been featured in solo exhibitions at Long Gallery, New York, NY and the Fondation des Etats-Unis, Paris, France. He has a forthcoming solo exhibition at Parrasch Heijnen Gallery, Los Angeles, CA, slated for February 2019.
