Paintings by Vonn Sumner

These are a few of the paintings by Los Angeles based artist, Vonn Sumner whose show ‘Gravity and Other Lies’ at Merry Karnowsky gallery just opened. Vonn’s work typically consists of figures whose faces are often covered in hoods or masks and set against bold, but usually flat backdrops of rich color. The compositions and placement of the figures within the paintings give the images a nice openness but suggest a degree of loneliness. There is also an undeniable quirkiness and at times downright odd and awkward humor to his work that is quite nice. If you’re in the L.A. area be sure to stop by and check out the show.
