T-Rex Art Print.
This art print was inspired by my son and his classmates. I often get requests for artwork for young and maturing boys to paint a dinosaur. I’ve always wanted to paint a dinosaur, but never got around to it. I went to school to celebrate my son’s fifth birthday with his class and as I was reading the birthday book all of his classmates had read to him one of the comments was “I wish Miro a birthday filled with dinosaurs”. It was probably one of the most normal of the birthday wishes, but I then noticed that seven out of the ten children were wearing dinosaurs on their shirts. I knew I needed to paint a dinosaur.
The museum of natural history is one of my top three favorite museum’s in the world and I knew that I wanted to paint my own photograph of dinosaur fossils as I do with all my photo series. The next day, following a class trip with my son to Barnes and Nobles, I headed straight to the museum of natural history with a 45-minute window in my calendar before my next meeting, ran up the stairs because I was so late. Took a bunch of shots trying not to get other spectators in the frame because I could not be late to this meeting and that was the inspiration behind this work. I wanted to depict a dinosaur in a way that has never been done before, filled with color, shapes, stimulation and imagination. This print is perfect for any boy’s room, toddler nursery or a playroom.
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.
