PHILIP SUMNER:
FOREVER ART IN METAL

What is the Day of the Dead? Contrary to Halloween, The Day of the Dead is NOT a spooky celebration. It is a day of reverence and remembrance of the loved ones who have passed away. It is a celebration of the dead. | D Best of San Miguel de Allende | Photographs and article by Onyx and Alexa

Dear Legend,

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 he builds for the 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.
