Inspired by one of my favorite color combinations, mint green and rusty orange, this piece was all about going outside of my comfort zone of black and white.  The stripes of mint and rust surround a dancing figure and are accented by pops of lemon yellow. 

This piece has black gallery-wrapped edges and is 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.
