The Santa Monica Museum of Art is preparing for the opening of a terrific new set of shows. Daniel Cummings: Recent Paintings will run in Project Room 1 from January 21 to April 16, 2011.

Daniel Cummings: Recent Paintings is the artist’s first museum exhibition. Cummings (b. 1980) is a graduate of the MFA program at UCLA in sculpture, where he transferred his interest in 3-dimensional objects to painting. His abstract work plays with space and color in a variety of scales. The result: Deceptively simple, formal compositions that belie complex figure/ground relationships.
