About the work
Trevor Sutton's empathy with Eastern, and particularly Japanese, culture is reflected in the profound meditative quality of his abstract paintings. Here, an image like a half moon suggests the delicacy of oriental ceramics, screens or tapestries. Sutton believes that the process of making paintings is as important as the end result. His ritualistic technique of applying layer upon layer of glazes using a range of brush sizes and varying colours gives the final painting a smooth surface, while still revealing the underlying texture and providing glimpses of colour beneath the dominant hues.
