Sarah Sutton's work is being influenced by a molecular reality, whether macro- or microscopic, whether animate or inanimate.

In her paintings the artist creates a metaphorical space where references to the internal body and landscape, microscopic and macroscopic worlds are interconnected.

There is no hierarchy of space or content in the paintings.

Representation and abstraction exist on the same level, as strands of visual informations, where all original reference loses its impact and becomes a structural element to the overall composition.
