Selah is a word of uncertain meaning, but indicates stillness and contemplation. Like my works, Selah creates a paradox. My paintings are prayers. Prayers voicing doubt and adversity, but paradoxically, callings of stillness and rejoice towards the hope that waits for the appointed time. It hastens towards the end and will not fail. Though it lingers, we must wait for it; for it will certainly come, and will not delay. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.
Wes Sumrall began painting at a young age and enjoys observing nature. As he explains, his work involves studying the nature of light by subduing the nuanced color variations instilled. He has been greatly influenced by Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Claude Monet. When he's not painting, he enjoys backpacking, going to music venues, working out and spending time with friends.

The painting was even more magnificent and impressive than what one imagined with the aid of the Ugallery's website. We are fans of Newman and Rothko and this artwork hit the spot right on. Also, we loved the consistency of Sumrall's portfolio, the way he deals with his style trying to find ways to deliver his truth. We'll keep an eye on him!- I Solas
I love my painting! When I look at it I see calm and I see chaos... it is moving. Thank you!- C Norton
