“Speak No Evil” was inspired by Sutton’s belief that gossip is the root of all evil. As the pandemic forced people to physically cover their mouths with masks this is also a reminder to symbolically practice this. Elizabeth believes in the importance of watching your tongue and how the things we say can affect the world around us. An enormous amount of trauma can be prevented if people just refrained from speaking crudely. Life is riddled with bullying and people talking about her life which has made her extra sensitive to gossip. The concept of Lashon Hara is a Jewish term for a derogatory speech about a person. Embarrassing or tainting someone’s image is a serious sin in Judaism, the faith closely followed by Sutton. Edition Size 50.
About Elizabeth Sutton
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. Working through each concept as if solving a puzzle, she strives for balance, never leaving unexamined the precise nuances of her creative subject.
With a 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. The work itself exhibits her skillful precision, eye for balance and decorous flow alongside her clients’ personal predilections and tastes. That’s why each piece speaks to the personalities of both its creator and customer. And with a nod to pop and a dash of kitsch, Sutton creates compositions that are focused on enlivening spaces and uplifting spirits. Sutton believes that her compositions find engaging the viewer with organizational complexity while simultaneously entertaining with whimsy.
