New Work From Rachell Sumpter

Illustration // Friday, November 01, 2013
Rachell Sumpter paints splendors into a desolate, peopled wilderness. Using layered gouache and pastel, these are scenes at once of community and of isolation: figures stand in heavy, embroidered clothing, hidden and yet seen, in procession, in ceremony or in witness to a wonder. There are melting mountain tops and bonfires, ghosts and graves; vast monuments and intimate moments that speak to the legacies a generation leaves, to the promises it makes...

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 01, 2013
This exhibition came down this past month in Stockholm, but we still had some great shots from Henrik Haven that he took of Michael Johansson's "Shades and Variables" at Galleri Andersson/Sandstrom.
