    Artist Statement

    Painting is always involved with the nature of light. As such, I have sought to polarize light; sinking and rising subtle variations with harsh instances of movement to instigate a contemplative narrative. Raised in a Christian conservative background, the pressures of faith have become my paradigm; yet, there is empathetic relation towards the fragmented and poignant temporality of the material world in which we reside. Embracing the nuances of both realities, I find myself exiled from religion and reason, and enclosed deep within the fissures of the present cultural chasm. My works instill an antinomy: a paradox illuminating adversity and isolation between faith, logic, and the search for beauty.

    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!
