GREGORY SUMIDA (b. 1948)

GREGORY SUMIDA Gregory Sumida is a painter and draftsman highly skilled in different media who, over a 50-year career, has explored a wide variety of subjects from landscapes and scenes of rural America to depictions of the Old West and portraits. Gregory Sumida: Americana Watercolors consists of watercolors Sumida made in the early 1970s of rural scenes mostly in the countryside around his hometown of Stockton, California. Following in the tradition of Andrew Wyeth, an artist Sumida greatly admires, he captured through his own interpretive lens a slice of Americana given, by his intensity of detail and superb technical control of earth tones, an atmospheric, autumnal, even nostalgic mood.
