Aerials - East Coast Storms
About this artwork
This painting is part of Wes Sumrall's current mixed media series, Aerials, influenced by the overshots of Earth from the International Space Station. The metal leaf used has a tendency to tarnish slightly after a few years. Wes explains that with the crisis of climate change, these paintings portray the ephemeral nature of earth, and paradoxically embody its beauty through the inevitable decay.
