The other morning we showed you a preview of Nicola Verlato's Zero Gravity work at Merry Karnowsky opening on August 11, and Vonn Sumner will be opening striking new works on the same night at MK's space in LA. Sumner’s characters are isolated, absurd, engaging, and somehow quietly common-place.
“My paintings are an attempt to bring together seemingly contradictory elements: the observable outer world and the subjective inner world; the formal possibilities of non-objective painting and the psychological possibilities of representational painting; seriousness and humor; artifice and authenticity; revealing and concealing."
