Last year, I very suddenly lost my father. That time of loss and confusion has inspired a series of minimalist, narrative paintings that explore the depths of sadness that loss can plunge us into, and the heights of strength it forces us to muster. Grief is isolating, and, like the figure in this piece, I felt like the only person I had to hold me while I cried was myself. While sad, this also speaks to the resilience of our spirit. Even alone, we are able to rise and find a way to press forward.
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.
