This painting is part of Wes Sumrall's current mixed media series, Aerials, influenced by the overshots of Earth from the International Space Station. The metal leaf used has a tendency to tarnish slightly after a few years. Wes explains that "with the crisis of climate change, these paintings portray the ephemeral nature of earth, and paradoxically embody its beauty through the inevitable decay."
Wes Sumrall began painting at a young age and enjoys observing nature. As he explains, his work involves studying the nature of light by subduing the nuanced color variations instilled. He has been greatly influenced by Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Claude Monet. When he's not painting, he enjoys backpacking, going to music venues, working out and spending time with friends.

The painting was even more magnificent and impressive than what one imagined with the aid of the Ugallery's website. We are fans of Newman and Rothko and this artwork hit the spot right on. Also, we loved the consistency of Sumrall's portfolio, the way he deals with his style trying to find ways to deliver his truth. We'll keep an eye on him!- I Solas
I love my painting! When I look at it I see calm and I see chaos... it is moving. Thank you!- C Norton
