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 awaits 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 painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Wes

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.
