Inspired by the dynamism of frame by frame film strips, this piece is all about movement and the play between the interlocking shapes. Four compositions in one, this painting juxtaposes soft, feminine lines with more angular shapes as it explores the representation of the figure. 

This painting features gallery-wrapped edges finished in a soft black to complement the black, white and red color palette, and the work comes wired for easy hanging.

Getting to Know Sumner

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 Dalí. Her goal is to keep exploring the minimalist, narrative surrealism she’s been moving toward. Fun fact: The Ballet Russes inspired her to start a series that explores dance through painting.
