Andrew Schumann, Chaotic Symmetry (detail)

2009 - Plastic beads on nylon monofilament

67 x 67 x 9cm

Describing his work as visual abstractions after nature ‘, Leonard McComb declares that

everything he draws or paints - whether a portrait head, flower, landscape, still life or

breaking sea wave - is for him a portrait.

A Royal Academician, winner of numerous awards, and with work exhibited in major

venues such as Whitechapel Art Gallery, Tate Gallery and Brussels Museum of Modern Art,

McComb has received many major commissions for private and corporate collections

throughout the UK, Europe and the USA.

Andrew Schumann describes making art as a blessedly useless activity that can inspire

wonder, love and insight. His recent works explore the mystery of life, expressed by ‘the

paradoxical relationship between the precision of the circle within its square and the

endless imprecision of the resulting ratio, pi – a number that goes on to infinity without

pattern or repetition.

Having studied Art History at Cambridge University and worked in industry for many

years, Schumann has been a full-time artist for the last 25 years, working from his studio

in Kings Lynn, Norfolk. He has exhibited extensively in Norfolk and has been a regular

exhibitor at the RA Summer Exhibition throughout the last 15 years.
