Concerned with our relationship to materials, place & rootedness, Sutton creates highly personal work that gives form to a universal human connection to cloth. Her work explores the links between: ecology, home, women’s stories, leftovers & waste. In dialogues between screen-print & embroidery; abstraction and representation, she questions the gaps crossovers & hierarchies between craft & fine art making.
‘ I am interested in concepts of repair & restoration, in how we value small unwitnessed acts of making, and the unseen ‘
