Studio Address | Long Island City, NY 11101

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 and designer 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.” Her work has been featured in Entrepreneur, Arch Digest, Arch Digest Spain, The New York Post, Time Out Magazine, Haute Living, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and more. Elizabeth’s philanthropic endeavors range from the nationally-recognized 92nd Street Y to United Hatzalah, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, and Lenox Health Greenwich Village, for which she’s raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. In 2017, Elizabeth participated in the Arch Digest Design Show and New York Design Center’s “What’s New What’s Next,” as well as 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. In 2018 Sutton launched a capsule collection with Bari Lynn Accessories for Bergdorf Goodman, which 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. In Summer 2019, Elizabeth was commissioned to paint the 180ft square deck of the Manhattan Park Pool. Elizabeth’s tile collection for Tilebar is a two time award collection, from Architectural Digest and HD Expo. In Fall 2019, Elizabeth also launched her first leather collection along with her lifestyle blog. Most recently, Elizabeth launched a collaboration with Janovic, the largest paint supplier in New York, curating 5 exclusive color palettes, with her artwork wrapping 5 large buildings in New York City and featured on 18 bus shelters. In 2020, Elizabeth will be launching a huge collaboration with the luxury Eden Rock hotel in St. Barths, and will be featured there in a solo exhibition.
