Ian Cumberland’s Portraits of Uncomfortable Solitude

Irish painter Ian Cumberland uses his penchant for realism to create emotionally poignant, surreal portraits. Capturing characters in moments of loneliness and dejection, Cumberland explores introspection through a rich, colorful palette and expressive brush strokes. Reflections and doppelgangers commonly appear in his work, as if the characters must confront themselves and be alone with their own thoughts.
