Roger Cummiskey´s paintings capture moments of quiet intensity and undiscovered beauty. His use of primary colours lends an air of nostalgia to his pictures, which distinguishes his work and creates a sense of timelessness.
Cummiskey’s compositions often capture the viewer’s attention with their simple, recognizable scenes, drawing the viewer’s attention to unexpected textures, nuances of shadow and brilliant bits of light.
Roger Cummiskey in terms of his ability is able to transform ordinary scenes of human life into moments ripe with dramatic possibility.
He lives and works between Dublin and Mijas Costa, Spain where he says he is able to find the “daily poetry” which inspires his art. D.Lee.
