"Recently in the studio, amidst a slew of projects for specific shows, I had the urge to do something unplanned, just for the fun of it; to remember what the joy of painting feels like, before painting became work. So, I created this little piece," Sumner explains of this painting. "I had no plan, and just let my brush wander. I used bright red, after working in monochrome for sometime, and added cropped arms inspired by my recent viewing of the Venus de Milo. This piece is a reminder to sometimes stop and just let creativity flow."
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.
