Torreya Cummings is a post-media, project based visual artist in the San Francisco Bay Area, working at the crossroads of history, memory, and fiction.

The work deals primarily with the conflict between an American cultural ideology of liberty and a practice of enclosure, seen through the lens of a possible "wild west": cinema, performance, queer aesthetics, urban and rural conflict, time, and space.
