Abstract paintings by William E. Shumway (Bill Shumway).
Abstract expressionism is what I gravitated toward in my youth. I was influenced heavily by painters like Franz Kline, Willem deKooning and Jasper Johns. It is for me a nonverbal language working with the elements of painting such as light, color, tonality and dynamics to express content in addition to depicting subject. Even when working in a representational way, I am conscious of abstract elements in the painting. Often I experiment with new materials or processes in abstract compositions before employing them in more traditional landscapes or figurative works.
