Portrait Subject: Debbi Sutton
Artist Statement
I am an educator, documenter and storyteller. My work is often a form of documentary autobiography. The world around me provides the framework that initiates and informs the conceptual evolution of enigmatic objects and environments. Using the personal I represent the universal in a continually evolving spiral of work, in which I return and revisit themes, developing interrelated pieces that prompt recollections, thoughts and questions from the viewer.
