BIOGRAPHY

Robyn Cumming makes photographs and sculpture. Her research is driven by a fervent interest in representation, and a personal fascination with depictions of the human creature. Employing humour and wit as a strategy for boundary transgression, she often conjures the mask and clowning to probe the relationship between the actual and the symbolic.

Her previous academic positions include the Art & Art History Program at Sheridan/UTM, the Photography Program at OCADU and 10 years of teaching photography in the Image Arts Department at Ryerson University. There she held the position of Associate Program Director of the Image Arts Program and the Director of the school’s off-site gallery Ryerson Artspace, leading the gallery’s move to its new location in 401 Richmond.
