ARTIST STATEMENT:

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.

BIOGRAPHY:

Elizabeth Sutton (b. 1989, New York, NY) is a millennial “mom-preneur” and visual artist who has taken the nouveau arts scene by storm. In 2016, Elizabeth was selected to participate in the NYDesigns incubator program, exhibited at both the Affordable Art Fair & Hamptons Designer Showhouse, and was featured by Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing,” as well as The New York Post. In early 2017, Elizabeth donated her work to the nationally-recognized 92nd Street Y’s Spring Fundraiser as well as Lenox Health Greenwich Village and participated in both the 2017 Architectural Digest Design Show and New York Design Center’s “What’s New What’s Next.” In October 2017, Sutton hosted a fundraising event for ArtStart, which the Executive Co-Director described as “by far the most successful event” in her time with the organization. Sutton most recently launched a capsule collection with Bari Lynn Accessories for Bergdorf Goodman, was subsequently picked up by Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Harrod’s. In Fall 2018, Sutton partnered with Joe & The Juice in locations across New York City, in support of The Art of Elysium.
