"A confident Curly Girl struts across the stage, channeling her inner Betty Boop," Sumner explains. "She flashes a playful tattoo as she moves across the floor, pictured here as stripes of black and lemon yellow, while the limelight curves around her. She is all about putting the fun in femininity." This painting is part of Sumner's signature series of Curly Girls. These flowing, Art Nouveau-inspired characters represent transformation. Sumner always places the figure alone and in the middle of a personal story - in the middle of their transformation.
Sumner Crenshaw infuses her work with movement, lines and varying degrees of color. She currently lives in Maryland and finds inspiration in the work of Salvador Dali. Her goal is to keep exploring the minimalist, narrative surrealism she's been moving toward.
