For his first solo exhibition in Project Ability’s gallery, transcendental noise artist Lea Cummings will present a suite of drawings, video and installation; devices for which the artist aims to channel the universal energy field. This new work charts a year-long studio project throughout 2014 supported by Unlimited to explore the spiritual aspects of physical reality, ritual performance and the role of human beings within the universe. Cummings presents the development of an experience that transports audiences into a mystical, magical place outside daily reality.
Lea Cummings works across a wide range of media, including sound, performance, painting, computer animation, film and collage. The themes that connect his work relate to distortion, noise, time, archetypes, symbolism and the subliminal. Lea is interested in humans as the creators of reality on every level. His work expresses alterations of perception, and the opening of channels to deeper levels of experience; escaping the prison of five-sense reality and breaking the control of consciousness from deliberate external deception.
