Many works of art betray the hand of the artist. Elizabeth Sutton’s work, however tells of the mind of the artist. Her compositional signature is a strong undercurrent of mathematical proportion and algorithmic color placement. Nothing is accidental, everything is intuitive. For Sutton, process is paramount and it begins with a survey of surface and dimension. Consideration of medium is also essential as all of these factors enter into Sutton’s equation while she works through each concept as if solving a puzzle. She strives for balance and never leaves unexamined the nuances of her creative space, subject or substance. With her strong background in mathematics and business, Sutton’s exacting process aims for a perfection that yet unfolds organically, creating pieces that are simultaneously unique and consistent in their compositional equilibrium.
