While in Mykonos with a photographer friend, Sutton posed for this image. Right after conceiving it in a dream. This risqué vision came to the artist while she slept: there were just snippets of beach, water and legs.
As she tried to recreate the image that she had seen in her mind’s eye, Sutton was jolted by a wave that threw her across a rocky surface and left her with a deep cut. The scar from this otherwise idyllic setup is a reminder that beauty is pain and a physical connection to the piece Forever Scarred itself. 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.
