The painter Vonn Sumner potrays mysterious, science-fiction like figures, that he calls the Confraternity. The men and women on his paintings wear bewildering costumes, masks, shades, and socks over their heads, and that have a mildly disturbing effect. The colors Vonn Sumner uses are pastel colors sometimes in the vivid color range, sometimes rather in the grey spectrum. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
