Overview

Alexandria Museum of Art Collection, Gift of John Onodi through the London Arts Group 1981.12.02

Sutton was educated initially in music and worked as a professional musician in New York City. A noted printmaker and collagist, Sutton is also a renowned researcher, author, artist and lecturer. Her research focus is community-based participatory research and design with a special emphasis on low-income and minority youth and other disenfranchised populations, evident in her visual art as well. The distortion of the ovals turn to circles as one moves to the left or right. The gold reflected surfaces and shifting frame, the concave backgrounds and flat patterned discs all reconfirm the instability and insecurity of the perception of material objects, and the illusion of light and movement.
