Dear Legend,

Art is a way to share what is important and meaningful in your life. Once shared, it begins a journey to reach that person who can see something beautiful and meaningful within it too. You may not realize the positive effect you have on those who enjoy your art, so always continue creating.

Create because you love to create. Embrace what emmanates from your heart. Learn to take constructive criticism too. Art is about creating, practicing, and re-creating. It is not meant to be perfect. It is meant to grow.

PHILIP SUMNER

MEDIUM: Metal

INSPIRATION: Complex, unique textures

LIFE LESSON: Be grateful and mindful of the time spent with those you care most about. Let your creations reflect the most meaningful aspects in your life.

Philip Sumner's art is a reflection of the human heart. He creates art in the most organic way, not looking for perfection, but instead purposely adding texture to metal through oxidizing agents and paint. These textures reflect the complexity of some of the important themes and ideas he tackles in his art, such as the concept that some things should be everlasting.

This idea intrigues him so much that he has thought about titling all of his artwork Forever.

"I wish some things could last that long. I wish my cat could live forever," Sumner stated.

Tiggy, Philip Sumner's Cat

The wooden frames Sumner builds for his metal art match that concept of preserving something meaningful, creating a shadow-box feel.

His art is appealing to many, because most of us can identify with the topics he addresses. Through his metalwork, Sumner reminds us that there are more things that unite us than divide us, and that authenticity in our daily lives is something we should strive for.
