Say hello to Cuba vibes with this beautiful art print.
As an artist, I work to constantly challenge myself and overcome new obstacles. So I often approach my paintings as a problem in need of solving. This particular image, another from my Cuba series, proved difficult. As I wasn’t entirely pleased with the photograph, but I believed it had great potential. I experimented with ratio and proportion and ultimately found myself thrilled with the result. And so in many ways this particular work represents not only the essence of my affection for the country, and the richness of my time spent there. But also the value in difficulty itself and the possibilities brought forth by seeming imperfection. This is an attitude, and a perspective, that informs everything in my life and work. Of course it’s difficult, and there’s often a temptation to abandon the effort, but this image gives form to the fact that sometimes, if you just stick with it, and embrace the unideal, see what’s missing or what’s incorrect as the source itself for inspiration, that’s what enables real dramatic growth both personally and creatively. Art print edition size is 40.
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.
