Other Details:
The work by Rumpp is inspired by the relationship between painting and sculpture, and forged from an interest in childlike materials and sensibilities. The fascination with childlike components comes from a desire to transform a material with a specific purpose. As an elementary art educator Rumpp is constantly surrounded by such materials and witnesses the intuitive ways children manipulate them in the classroom. Inspired by this notion, she uses similar materials to manifest work that nods to the original shape of the object while creating a new context for it within a contemporary landscape.

The interactions between color, form, material, and light are integral to the work. The structure of the piece informs color based on existing shadows. Rumpp often utilizes gradients to emphasize the idea that shadows and highlights contribute to the color scheme, as if it all existed within a two-dimensional plane.

The LMU Center for the Arts houses the Art Program at LMU and is nestled in the historic town of Cumberland Gap, TN. The Art Program and the Gallery at the LMU Arts Center strives to bring cutting edge contemporary art from local and regional artists to the LMU community. We aim to foster conversation about the place of visual arts and how they impact the diverse community of Appalachia in the 21st Century. The LMU Center for the Arts is located at 703 Brooklyn St. in Cumberland Gap and is open Monday through Friday from 10am-5pm, and by appointment.
